Serena Williams continued her tennis comeback with a 7-6, 7-5 win over Kiki Bertens at the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday, setting up a third-round encounter with her sister Venus.
Serena, who is returning to the sport after taking more than a year away to have a baby, was ragged at times but used her power to wear down the Dutch 29th seed in Indian Wells, California.
"I'm getting there. I have such a long way to go," the 23-times grand slam champion told reporters. (UNI)
