Only eight players (a total of nine times) have defeated Venus and Serena in the same tournament, only four have done this at a Slam, and only two have pulled it off at a Slam in consecutive rounds: Martina Hingis at the 2001 Australian Open and Justine Henin at the 2007 US Open.
Serena Williams comforted her tearful teen opponent, Dayana Yastremska, who was visually emotional over her loss to the 23-time grand slam champion at the Australian Open on Saturday. Halep isn't the greatest player of all time, unlike her opponent today, but she is the current world No1 and banished much of the self-doubt that used to grip her game by winning the French Open a year ago.
"You've just got to play each match as it comes", said Williams, after needing just 67 minutes to end the challenge of Yastremska, who had beaten Australian Samantha Stosur in the opening round. Halep plays Kaia Kanepi. She's been a lot at number one.
Women's 4th round: Danielle Collins beat No. 2 Angelique Kerber 6-0, 6-2; No. 8 Petra Kvitova beat Amanda Anisimova 6-2, 6-1; No. 15 Ash Barty beat No. 30 Maria Sharapova 4-6, 6-1, 6-4; Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova beat No. 5 Sloane Stephens 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-3.
Eighth seed Kei Nishikori made it back-to-back victories for Japan by beating Portugal's 44th-ranked Joao Sousa 7-6 (8/6), 6-1, 6-2. "But for sure, she's the best player in the world, because she won so many Grand Slams".
"If this was my last match ... I'll be playing against a great champion, so it'll be a big challenge for me, but I'm ready to face it".
Halep broke Venus in the first game then held to love serving in the next.
"I think I have to play similar [to her performance against Venus], if I can".
