Serena Williams gears up to launch her own beauty line

Serena Williams gears up to launch her own beauty line

Indian Wells: Rain played spoilsport as Roger Federer's return to the men's section of the BNP Paribas Open was interrupted during his second round match against Federico Delbonis.

The 36-year-old Serena took centre stage as she needed just under two hours to dispatch Bertens, of the Netherlands, 7-6 (7/5), 7-5 here, Saturday.

In the past, Indian Wells - which is tennis' biggest tournament outside the majors - has had special significance for the sisters following an incident in 2001, when Venus and dad Richard were booed by spectators as they went to their seats for the Indian Wells final. She has won both her matches in straight sets.

With Serena Williams coming back last week after 14 months away, she, and everyone watching, were taking it one match at a time.

Playing in her first singles tournament since giving birth to her daughter in September, Serena has already proven herself a threat with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Zarina Diyas and a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win over No. 29 seed Kiki Bertens.

"Obviously I wish it was anybody else in the draw, literally anybody, but that's OK", Serena said.

It is Serena that holds the better of the head-to-head between the siblings, with 17 wins to her name compared to Venus' 11. It's against this opponent that Serena has had some career-defining moments. Their last meeting was in the 2017 Australian Open final, where Serena beat her sister in straight sets while several weeks pregnant.

Serena made a decision to return in 2015, whilst Venus came back to Indian Wells in 2016. At a news conference that day, another player was asked who would have won the match between the sisters.

"She's playing really well and just honing her game", Venus said.

Serena, unseeded in the wake of her long layoff, admitted she would have preferred not to come up against her sister so soon in the draw.

We don't know too much about her brand yet, but Williams has spoken in the past about the difficulties of finding makeup that can withstand her training routines, meaning it's possible she'll come out with some super-long-lasting, sweat-proof beauty items (fingers crossed).
