The 25-year-old eventually closed out the set and, despite going a break down in the first game of the decider, proved too strong for the 21-year-old Ukrainian, who was playing in the main draw of a Grand Slam for the first time.

Venus, the 2000 and 2001 champion in NY, made the third round for the 17th time with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Serena, a six-time U.S. Open champion, was given a seeding boost by officials after her maternity leave.

The matchup that everyone in the tennis world treasures - except for the two women involved - will take place Friday in Flushing as Serena and Venus Williams face off in the third round of the U.S. Open after both won in straight sets Wednesday.

Venus said after her match, "we get to play". "They are totally shocking for me", she said.

Nike, one of Serena's major sponsors, sent her an awesome message after the catsuit ban. As players, as representatives of the WTA Tour, I believe we're going to do the best we can to make sure that we are the most progressive sport and continue to break those boundaries, because it's unacceptable'.

Serena and Venus Williams set up a 30th career meeting on Wednesday as the US Open reeled from a sexism row sparked when a player changed her shirt on court.

During her post-victory news conference, which came long before Serena set foot on court against Witthoeft, Venus clearly had little interest in entertaining questions about the possible all-in-the-family match. "Any other questions about anything else?" she barked. So I think that's the toughest part for me. "I know the same thing is for her".

But 20 years since the sisters' first collision course in the Australian Open, which Venus won 7-6 (7-4), 6-1, another chapter awaits Friday.

Venus later joked that her younger sister had had an unfair advantage: "It was two against one", the older Williams said.

"If I would say my true feelings, it would be bleeped out, because it was ridiculous", said Azarenka. When I woke up this morning, I didn't think that this code violation would become so famous in less than 24 hours, and I'm very surprised about it'.
