Serena Williams made quite a splash on Friday with that wondrous split as well as beating Madison Keys on Sunday. Serena will now be going to the quarterfinals as she faces off against her sister, Venus Williams, who is also doing very well at the Open. This is what we know about the Serena Williams vs. Venus Williams US Open 2015 Championship Match, as well as the start time, TV Schedule, and how to watch online with livestreaming.
The two sisters will be facing each other on Tuesday night in the quarterfinals of the US Open. The match is considered to be huge as Venus Williams, who wants to win an eighth major tennis title, will have to play against her own sister to take it, and Serena is very motivated to win.
Of course, this isn't the first time that the two have been pitted against each other professionally. It fact, it is the 27th time. According to the New York Times, Serena Williams said that "I'm playing, for me, the best player in the tournament", and she was referring to Venus.
Serena is the one who is arguably the best player in the world. As the defending Open champion who won the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon, she is only three wins away from getting the Grand Slam. However, Venus is equally motivated to win as she is three away from her first US Open title since 2001.
Both of these players are sufficiently motivated, but the numbers are in Serena's favor as she has a 15-11 advantage against her older sister and won six of their last seven of their matches. What makes it interesting is that they are 2-2 with Serena winning the last time with two tiebreakers in the 2008 quarterfinals.
Serena described playing Venus this way: "It's like playing a mirror". According to CBS News, the sisters' mother, Oracene Price, is planning not to attend the quarterfinal. I suppose it might be difficult to be in this situation and find that you are rooting for one sibling over another.
It would be interesting to see Serena play against Venus, and it seems that Serena is quite motivated to win all four major tennis tournaments this year. The last time this happened was when Steffi Graf did it in 1988. When asked why it has been so long since anyone else pulled off a true Grand Slam, Serena answered "I don't know why it took me so long" after a long pause.
