It looks like another Williams sister-sister face-off is headed our way!  

On Wednesday, Venus and Serena Williams both won their second-round match at the U.S. Open with Venus defeating Camila Giorgi 6-4, 7-5, and Serena defeating Carina Witthoft 6-2, 6-2. Now the dynamic sister duo will face each other in the third round of the tournament on Friday. 

This will mark their earliest showdown at a major tournament in 20 years, and be the 30th meeting of their professional careers.

"Unfortunately and fortunately we have to play each other," Serena said. "We make each other better. We bring out the best when we play each other. It's what we do, so, I think we're used to it now."

Either way, we're rooting for the Williams sisters. Best of luck Venus and Serena.
