Venus Williams and her sister Serena are undoubtedly the best pair who dominated the women’s tour over the past two decades. The legendary sisters have been an inspiration for many. It is always hard for one to choose the best between the two as both of them have been fierce rivals on the court.

The Williams sisters always bring out their best game against each other. When we look at their head-to-head record, Serena has dominated her elder sister Venus almost every time and it’s only on rare occasions that Venus got the better off Serena.

The Last Time Venus Williams Defeated Serena

The 2018 BNP Paribas Open saw one of the biggest rivalries of the current era where the Williams sisters came face-to-face. The game was important for both the sisters as Serena was returning after a one-year gap because of her pregnancy, whereas Venus was still searching for her first win against her younger sister since 2014.

In a high-pressure game, Venus held her nerves brilliantly to win the game in straight sets. After the match, Venus talked about how it was important for her to hold her nerves as Serena was playing very well.

Also, the hype and anticipation must be high in the game between these two but Venus took it like any other game as all matches are important and no game is simple and one needs to fight for every single win.

“Every match is hard. Nobody gives it to you. It’s an all-new challenge, each and every match gotta earn it. It’s always disappointing to me to lose to anyone. Doesn’t matter at any time at any stage. It’s just the anticipation you feel naturally. Serena’s playing very well, so the biggest challenge is really her tennis,” Venus said.

Further, Serena returned to winning ways and hasn’t lost to her sister after that match. However, the two have been away from court for a long time now and the fans will certainly miss the rivalry between the legendary sister duo.
