Venus Williams defeated younger sister, Serena, in a exhibition in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on Thursday, coming back from a set down to win 4-6, 6-3, 10-8.

“This is our first match back, so what we wanted was to give it our all,” said Venus.

The match was the headliner on Thursday during the World Tennis Championship, following the two men’s quarterfinals which saw Hyeon Chung take on Kevin Anderson, and Domionic Thiem playing Karen Khachanov.

“It was really fun and so good to see everyone come out to support myself and Venus,” said Serena. “It was really fun out here.”
