Venus Williams opens play at French Open on Day 4

French Open Day 1 schedule Williams Thiem Kvitova & Evans in action

She came closest in 2002 when she was beaten in the final by her younger sister, as she was at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open that year.

This will be the first time these two meet on the tennis court.

Williams turns 37 next month, but is showing no signs of slowing down.

"She's going to call me 'favorite aunt, '" Venus Williams said after winning a second round at the French Open.

Williams recently revealed that she was pregnant while her baby is expected in the fall.

Makarova, also left-handed, is a former top tenner who has made at least the quarterfinal of all the majors, except the French Open. Thanks to Venus Williams, fans are speculating that that's the case. "How I want to play this tournament is aggressive-if it goes in or goes out. Just to get through it was something that I know I'll be very proud of". She played some fantastic games in the beginning.

The second set would take rather less time, as Williams thundered through the demoralised Nara for the loss of just one more game, 6-1.

"I never look up to my box that much", Venus said. "He raised me to be a competitor and a fighter until the last point", Johnson said.

ICSE, ISC results to be announced today at 3 pm
In 1973, the Council was listed in the Delhi School Education Act 1973, as a body conducting "public" examinations. And so, after almost two weeks of delays and uncertain reports, ICSE results 2017 are finally coming today.

"There was a lot of stuff going on the court".

Williams will next face either Richel Hogenkamp of the Netherlands or Elise Mertens of Belgium.

Although he has often wasted his talent with his antics and his inability to handle frustration, Frenchman Paire is a gifted player anyone should handle with care, nine-time Roland Garros champion Nadal said.

Williams then nearly lost a 40-0 lead but managed to fend off a break point in the marathon 18-points game, consolidating the break in a very tight game. The German regained the No. 1 ranking after Serena Williams went on maternity leave, but was affected by a back injury in the build up and admits her confidence is not where she would like it to be. Kvitova double faulted into the net on match point and spiked her Wilson racquet in frustration at that transgression.

Steve Johnson advanced to the third round of the French Open by beating Borna Coric 6-2, 7-6 (8), 3-6, 7-6 (6).

Big-hitting Milos Raonic beat Rogerio Dutra Silva of Brazil to advance to the third round of the French Open.

The Italian was beaten 6-3 3-6 6-2 by Olympic champion Monica Puig.
