Serena Williams started after 15 months break

Venus Williams and Serena Williams talk as they play during a match

"I didn't really feel comfortable out there today, didn't really get my game going the way I wanted to", Wozniacki said. "But I have to play a seed regardless, sooner than later most times for the next couple of tournaments".

"It's a huge difference to play her in the semifinals or even the quarterfinals or a final as opposed to the third round", she said.

Serena Williams and Venus Williams will go head-to-head for the 29th time when they meet in the 2018 Indian Wells Round of 32 on Monday, but for the first instance in their historic rivalry, it's not just sister vs sister.

Venus raced to a 3-0 lead in the second set after breaking her sister twice and had a match point at 5-3 which Serena saved, before Venus saved a break point of her own at 5-4 and went on to take the match.

But Indian Wells marks Serena's first tournament since beating Venus in the 2017 Australian Open final, having given birth to daughter Alexis Olympia last September and revealing to CNN she nearly died afterward due to a pulmonary embolism that triggered complications.

Serena subsequently stayed away from Indian Wells until 2015, while Venus didn't return until one year later. Having to play each other in the third round, one of us is going to be gone.

Few have handled Serena - the record 23-time grand slam victor - as well as Venus, as evidenced by their head-to-head record. Serena Williams, however, is back on court after surviving a post-natal ordeal, which she said nearly took her life away.

It was a scratchy win for the Dane, who seemed troubled by her racquets throughout the match. You know, she just did everything great. It's not exactly where I want to be, but I mean, I'll get there eventually. "When she's missing, it's not by much".
