Serena Williams started after 15 months break

Venus and Serena are scheduled to face each other after 2 p.m. ET on Monday, live on the Tennis Channel and streaming online at WatchESPN.

"I definitely know her well, but she definitely played a little bit better than she normally does, " Serena said. Serena admitted that she cried in the locker room for "hours" after defeating Clijsters.

Collins, ranked 116th and making her first appearance in the main draw, is just starting her second year on the WTA Tour. "I have a lot to improve on", she said.

Two decades after their first meeting on professional tour, the Williams sisters continue to be a dominant presence on the WTA circuit.

Raiders to release CB Sean Smith
He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015 before signing a four-year, $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders. Smith was arrested last August 17 for allegedly assaulting his sister's then-boyfriend, Christopher Woods, last July 4.

"That's totally gone out of my mind", she said. "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".

Serena was playing in her first tournament since giving birth last September and faced her sister for the 29th time, with Venus winning all but four of their meetings. In an interview with BBC, Serena said, "It's been hard". "This whole month I am playing tournaments in California and Florida-both my home states". "It nearly doesn't matter, but it would just be fantastic to see her do it now". My favorite match against her? I think that's going to be a huge story, maybe the story of the year. It pisses me off and saddens me like I lost, I hate losing.

"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". Serena's beauty product line will consist of skin care, make up kits, perfumes and bath products. This is general practice: the players share a cart, studiously avoiding each other, sometimes buried deep in their Beats headphones.

Despite the loss Serena still leads their career series 17-12.

Trump moves to block Broadcom's potential Qualcomm takeover
In an order issued late Monday, Trump ordered Broadcom to withdraw its efforts to gain control of Qualcomm's board of directors. It's been working for more than a year to close that deal, which Qualcomm says is key to entering new, fast-growing markets.

That levelled the score at 30-30 and Wozniacki won two out of the next three points she needed to take the third set and the match in the $16 million joint WTA/ATP hardcourt tournament.

Wozniacki overturned a 4-1 deficit in the opening set as she reeled off five successive games to take the lead.

Speaking after her win, Serena recognised that she has work to do to return to the top of the game but is relishing the challenge. "So I'm like, 'Okay, I need to not be so negative, even though it's hard", she said.

Still showing some rust from her long layoff, Serena hit just one ace and made 37 unforced errors to 32 for Bertens.

Korea agree to maintain 'maximum pressure' on N. Korea
Though it warranted just a brief in the North's main newspaper, last week's meeting in Pyongyang was a big one. He pledged strong cooperation with the South and the United States to resolve those issues.

"It's not exactly where I want to be, but I'll get there eventually".
