"I would prefer to play someone else, anybody else, literally anybody else, but it has to happen now and one of us will be going home", Serena said about the upcoming match.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind", Serena said Saturday. The tennis ace gave birth to her first child on September 1 previous year and this is her first professional tennis tournament post Australian Open 2017, in which she had clinched the title.

Venus has only beaten Serena once since 2009, but the younger sister has just returned after becoming a mother.
