That was also Serena's last match before stepping away to give birth to her daughter in September. "Came out and crushed it", Federer told the media after dismissing 25th-seeded Filip Krajinovic to reach the Indian Wells round of 16.
"I think that's going to be a huge story, maybe the story of the year", he said.
"I know what to expect". "She just came roaring back".
"I really abhor every time we play, but I do enjoy the battle when I'm out there", Serena said, per Melissa Isaacson of the tournament's official site. "I'm from right down the street in Compton, California".
Why Trump's modest proposal on guns still might not happen in Congress
The president, who wields the power of the bully pulpit, conceded raising the age limit did not have "much" political support. He said on Twitter: "Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House".
In an essay for Time magazine just before her return, she made it clear she feels much of the vitriol was racist in nature.
Serena, now unranked after leaving the Tour for more than a year during her pregnancy and early motherhood, had won eight of the previous nine matches between the sisters dating to 2014 when Venus beat her in a Montreal semi-final.
Against Bertens, she got in just 54 percent of her first serves and won just 63 percent of her first-serve points, leading to four breaks for her opponent.
Serena advanced to the final and despite winning was on the receiving end of ugly jeering and boos throughout her match with Kim Clijsters.
WWE Fastlane lineup: Six matches advertised for tonight's event
That was a huge win as the trio of Kofi Kingston , Big E and Woods are the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions of all time. They literally left a trail of destruction with fans not believing what they were seeing, such was the impact they had made.
It was a straight sets victory of 6-3 6-4 over the new mother. However, Serena leads her head to head record (17-12) against Venus Williams. After her second-round win, she had a tougher time recovering and was hurting Monday night. Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, Why do I feel so sad when I have a handsome baby? In the build-up to the game, Serena stated as much.
Serena was clearly wary in the second set and could not repeat the start she had in the first. "The rest of her game needs time and we can not buy time, so we are going to work as hard as possible to get her back to her highest level with the goal of winning the next Grand Slam".
Some great defence from Serena drew an overhead error from Venus and suddenly the younger sibling had a break point.
Venus and Serena's father and coach Richard Williams, claimed that that he and his daughters were racially abused and neither of the sisters played in the tournament for the next 14 years. Unseeded at a tournament for the first time since Cincinnati in 2011, Serena struggled to counter Venus when her sister attacked her forehand with her deep and flat groundstrokes.
