Serena, Venus advance to round four of Australian Open

Venus Williams at the 2010 Australian Open

Defending champion Serena Williams beat Carla Suarez Navarro 6-0 6-3 to advance to the fourth round of the Australian Open. Let me remind you that the Spaniard knocked out Serena’s elder sister Venus at last year’s Australian Open, in the second round already. This year, the top-seeded Serena avenged her sister’s defeat, won the first five games of the match in just 15 minutes, then the long sixth game in 19 minutes, before routinely taking the second set.

Venus Williams took out home favorite Casey Dellacqua 6-1 7-6(4) in the third round. The sixth-seeded Williams was pushed to play a second-set tiebreak, and her opponent even fought off three match points before finally losing to the seven-time Grand Slam champion.

    Lilly, that it definitely an old picture because Venus’ hair is different now and she has been wearing EleVen for over a year and a half now. I think that Venus’ yellow dress is horrible, especially with the brown detail and the splits at the side. Come to think of it, not that many of her outfits have been that nice recently…

    Sou brasileiro, moro no Rio de Janeiro e li uma reportagem sobre a polemica que sua roupa causou, achei uma grande bobagem isso tudo.
    O importante é que o seu tenis está cada vez melhor.
    Gostaria de dizer que sou teu fã e que torço muito pelo teu sucesso e de tua irmã tambem.
    Grande beijo
