And Venus is hoping she can be reunited with her sister for the first time in nearly two years.

Like Serena, Anne says her catsuit was more about function than fashion - explaining her outfit was meant to keep her warm in the cold weather.

"It's early in the tournament, so both of us are going to be looking forward to continuing to play better, " Venus said.

The last time they met in a major was the final of the 2017 Australian Open, which Serena won while playing two months pregnant.

Also into the last 32 is Elina Svitolina (7) of Ukraine after a 6-3, 6-2 win over Germany's Tatjana Maria.

Just days after being criticised for wearing a tight black catsuit, Serena Williams made her return to the US Open in style.
