Serena Williams and her sister Venus Williams exacted revenge against Italian players Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta during their doubles exhibition matches in Milan, Italy. Schiavone ousted Venus 7-5, 7-3 in their singles match while it took much more effort and time to defeat Serena 7-3, 8-10, 8-6. Schiavone is known for her comeback wins!
Serena had better luck defeating Pennetta 6-8, 7-3, 7-3 but older sister Venus lost to Pennetta 7-6, 7-2. While Venus’ match didn’t appear that exciting judging by the score, a near wardrobe malfunction courtesy of Venus made up for it. During her match with Pennetta, Venus’ Eleven design dress strap broke forcing the tennis star to rush off court for a wardrobe change. Remaining in good spirits, Venus brought out popcorn to share with Flavia.
The Williams sisters had better luck in the doubles against Schiavone and Penetta winning in a hard fought match, 3-7, 8-6, 8-6.
Venus is on a comeback trial after pulling out of the US Open three months ago when she revealed her battle with Sjogrens Syndrome, an autoimmune disease.
Venus also defeated Serena last month in an exhibition match in Colombia
