Serena, Venus all geared up for Rome rematch

Serena Williams will face sister Venus in the 2nd round of Italian Open more than two decades after they last faced each other in Rome. Four-time Rome winner Serena made her comeback after two months out with injury winning 6-4, 6-2 against Swedish qualifier Rebecca Petersen. But 38-year-old Venus, whose only Rome title was in 1999, required over three hours to battle past Belgian Elise Mertens 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (7/4).
