"We play each other, we both try to bring our best game just like in other matches, and I think we both know we have to play even better because it's against each other," Venus said after winning her opening match on Sunday.

The last time the sisters met at a major tournament was in the 2009 Wimbledon final. Serena won.

Djokovic, who is known for sense of humor as well as his tennis skill, sat and chatted with a ball boy during a brief rain break in his first-round match. He later said he hoped the same ball boy would be back for his next match.
