SERENA BEATS VENUS AT U.S. OPEN
Serena Williams beat her sister Venus Williams in the US Open third-round match. This was the 30th time they’ve played each other.
The quick 6-1, 6-2 victory increased Serena’s domination of her big sister to 18-12 since they first played 20 years ago. “It’s not easy, she’s my best friend and she means the world to me,” Serena 36, told the crowd after Venus, 38, left the court after the 72-minute match.
“She’s supportive of me, and I’m supportive of her. Every time she loses I feel I lose, too. But we all know that there’s a whole lot more to life than tennis. “I love her with all my heart and she’s the reason I’m here, and Jehovah,” Serena added. “After God, I owe everything to her.”
