#VenusWilliams vs. #SerenaWilliams making history at U.S. Open #HappeningNow
“I don’t really feel like if I win this tournament it’s going to make or break my career,” Serena, 33, said in her post-match news conference Sunday after defeating Madison Keys. “I look at it that way.”
Any way you look at it, it’s Serena who leads the head-to-head series with Venus 15-11, including six of the last seven matches.
But there is no player in the draw whom Serena respects — or perhaps fears — more.
“I’m playing, for me, the best player in the tournament, and that’s never easy,” Serena said. “She’s beaten me so many times. She’s a player that knows how to win, knows how to beat me and knows my weaknesses better than anyone.”
It’s a match that is hardest for the Williams family to watch.
