Garcia advances to the round of 16 where she will face either Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation or 10th seeded German Angelique Kerber.

The world No. 1, like many fans around the world, is buzzing over episode 29 of the Venus vs. Serena rivalry at Indian Wells tonight. I think she's playing great compared to when she was younger.

She made it to round three and faced off against her older sister Venus, 37, on March 12 in a pairing that wowed tennis fans everywhere.

It was Venus' seventh appearance in the California desert, and third since 2001, after an absence of 15 years.

"I think Indian Wells disgraced America", said Richard Williams.

Richard Williams claimed to have heard racist taunts, and no member of the family returned to the increasingly prestigious tournament for more than a decade.

The crowd's treatment led to a 14-year boycott by the sisters, which Serena finally ended in 2015. She beat Sorona Cirstea in her second-round match, also in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.

"That's totally gone out of my mind", she said.

The Indian Wells match was 17 years in the making.

However, only one of the two was at her best on Monday night.

"It was in juniors", said Serena. "Serena being a mum now, Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

She added: "It's been wonderful". I can really learn from her.

Serena advanced to the final and despite winning was on the receiving end of ugly jeering and boos throughout her match with Kim Clijsters. "I had chances for the match to be over, but it wasn't". I definitely don't have a favorite match.

"I really abhor every time we play, but I do enjoy the battle when I'm out there", Serena said last weekend. "It's just afterward I don't like it as much". I've always wanted to be a mom but I never seemed to have time with my career.

The sisters have often said the other tennis playing sibling is their toughest opponent.

This was the first singles tournament of her comeback, and she arrived with no official ranking and no seeding, which explains how she and the 8th-seeded Venus wound up facing each other in the third round.

Serena boasted a superior 17-11 record against her older sister, having defeated Venus in the 2017 Australian Open final - her last competitive outing before spending time away from the WTA Tour circuit following the birth of her daughter in September. "She kept roaring back, I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now".
