A Serena vs. Venus Williams head-to-head match may not hold the same kind of luster it did a decade ago, but it still commands your attention like few other events in all of sports.

It’s not just No. 1 in the world vs. No. 23 for a spot in the semifinals at Flushing Meadows. It’s not just six US Open titles vs. two US Open titles. It’s not just doubles partner vs. doubles partner. It’s not just two of the best to ever play the game.

It’s sister vs. sister, a family affair. And it’s undeniably compelling, even if this is the 27th time it has happened on Tour.

Serena and Venus have met 26 times heading into Tuesday’s match, with Serena taking 15 and Venus winning 11. Of those 26, 13 have come at Grand Slam events (Serena leads, 8-5) and eight have been Grand Slam finals (Serena leads, 6-2).
