It was the latest installment in the tennis battle everyone wanted to see: Serena vs. Venus.
As the Williams sisters faced off for the fifth time during their remarkable U.S. Open runs at Flushing Meadows, it was Serena who held off her big sister to win in three sets and book a place in the semi-finals.
A visibly emotional Serena appeared to hold back tears before serving an ace to end the match, winning 6-2, 1-6, 6-3.
“It’s a really great moment, she’s the toughest player I’ve ever played in my life and the best person I know,” she said in an interview on court after the match.
“It’s going against your best friend, and at the same time going against the greatest competitor for me in women’s tennis. So it was really difficult today.”
