Talking about competing in the upcoming Grand Slams tournament, Serena was quoted as saying, "If I want to play in those grand slams and play well then now is the ideal time to start".

She takes a career head-to-head record over Venus of 17-11 into their third-round clash.
Serena is still shaking off the rust after the long layoff as she hit four aces but had her serve broken four times. These three matches made me understand what I need to work on. "When she's missing, it's not by much".
