Angelique Kerber vs Venus Williams Tennis. A mouthwatering second round clash at the Sydney International sees two Grand Slam champions and former world number one players face off.
Kerber and Williams are set to face off for the eighth time on Tuesday.
There can be no doubt that most anticipated match at the Sydney International pits two of the biggest names in tennis against each other, with former world number one and two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber set to face fellow former world number one and seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams in the second round.
This will be the eighth meeting between the two, with Kerber edging the head-to-head 4-3. However, it was Williams who won the last match between the two, in straight sets at the Miami Open last year.
This will be the fourth match on the Ken Rosewall Arena on Tuesday, taking place at around 18:00 local time. The winner will face either Dominika Cibulkova or Elena Vesnina in the quarterfinals.
This is certainly a blockbuster encounter, with it being very rare that two big names meet so early in a tournament, especially a week before a Grand Slam tournament. It is hard to call, but considering how Kerber has looked so far this season, it seems the German may be able to use that confidence to seal a hard-fought victory.
