Venus Williams and Angelique Kerber will fight for a place in the semifinal in Indian Wells on Thursday at 5 pm.
Currently ranked no. 36, the American is having a fantastic run in Indian Wells especially after she defeated Petra Kvitova in 3 sets in the 2nd round. Venus has an 8-2 win-loss record in 2019 after she reached the quarters in Auckland and the 3rd round in Melbourne.
Ranked no.8, Angelique is not having a smashing year. She has a 10-4 win-loss record and after 4 tournaments (Sydney, Melbourne, Doha, and Dubai) she has never managed to reach a final which is uncharacteristic for her standards. In Indian Wells, she got to the quarters after beating Aryna Sabalenka 6-1 4-6 6-4.
Head to head Venus Williams vs. Angelique Kerber
This will be the 9th time that Venus and Angelique will play each other. The head to head is 5-3 for Kerber, but Venus leads 3-2 on hard courts.
