Federer hails Williams sisters after legendary 29th clash in careers

'Long way to go' for Serena Williams after defeat by sister Venus defeat at Indian Wells

I think this will change a little bit in the future, but for sure (her) game is good and not really any weakness.

It is rare for the Williams sisters to play this early in a tournament and the earliest they have faced each other since their first encounter at the Australian Open in 1998. "It wasn't very easy, obviously", she said.

"They had a massive arrival on the scene, a lot of buzz around them, and they lived up to the hype, came out and crushed it", Federer was quoted by the WTA official website as saying on Tuesday.

'Her level is super high and it was very hard to close out the match, just getting one ball back.

Serena, who recently had a baby and is just coming back to active tennis, hit four aces but had her serve broken four times in a 6-3 6-4 loss to Venus in California.

You're out there, and I can't really replicate the situation no matter how much I do in practice, or I make those shots 10 times out of 10 in practice.

Earlier, Venus cut short Serena Williams' return after a 15-month pregnancy layoff by defeating the latter 6-3, 6-4 in the last-32 clash that lasted one and a half hours.

Typically, the sisters wouldn't meet until the later rounds of a tournament.

"It was a quick turnaround from last night when it feels like, 'Hey, this is a final to you're only in the fourth round, "' said Williams, as revealed by the New Zealand Press-based press. "She kept roaring back, I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now".

Venus's victory comes 17 years after an ugly booing incident led to a 14-year boycott of the tournament by the sisters. "They are both over 35, 36, and still basically playing at the top with Serena being a mom now and Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

She was the 2017 Australian Open champion, beating Venus in the final while eight weeks pregnant.

Asked if playing Monday brought closure to what happened in 2001, seven-time grand slam champion Venus replied: "It never crossed my mind". She looked like Serena most of the time. "My room for improvement is incredible", added Serena. "I'm getting there. It's not exactly where I want to be, but I'll get there eventually". "I thought I was in control of the point and winning the point, and she turned it around".
