The American siblings, aged 38 and 36, were playing for the 30th time since they first competed against each other 20 years ago.
“This was my best match since I have returned. It’s not easy,” Serena said of beating her big sister Venus in an interview after the match.

“She’s my best friend, she means the world to me. She’s so supportive of my career and I’m extremely supportive of her career and every time she loses I feel like I do.

So yeah, it’s not very easy, but it’s a tournament and we all know that there’s more to life than just playing each other and playing tennis.”

Venus said she thought it was her sister’s best performance in their matches, because she did not “even get to really touch any balls”.
