Serena Williams said on Saturday she "literally didn't even think about" the canceled 2001 match. "So it is what it is".
The 36-year-old American, who was out for 14 months, beat Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 7-6 (7-5) 7-5 in round two.
While her business experience includes several endorsement deals through brands like Nike and Gatorade, she also serves as a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins alongside her tennis-playing sister, Venus Williams. "Great way to come back".
Venus achieved victory behind winning 81 per cent of Cirstea's second service points, leading her to six breaks of serve during the match. "When she's missing, it's not by much".
She takes a career head-to-head record over Venus of 17-11 into their third-round clash.
This is the first time the siblings will play each other at the BNP Paribas Open.
Venus ended her boycott a year later, and now they are set to meet for a place in the last 16. "We can always stay in the tournament longer if the both of us are in the tournament".
"It's a huge difference to play her in the semi-finals or even the quarter-finals or a final as opposed to the third round".
Williams has said she spent "hours crying in the Indian Wells locker room" after the final, and would not return to the tournament until 2015. The announcement drew boos from fans, who expressed doubt that she was indeed injured. This is just her third appearance in the California desert in 17 years. She said their father, Richard, would probably decide - an insinuation that their matches were rigged. "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".
Talking about competing in the upcoming Grand Slams tournament, Serena was quoted as saying, "If I want to play in those grand slams and play well then now is the flawless time to start".
Venus had a bye in the first round and reached the round of 32 by beating Sorana Cirstea in straight sets.
Venus' last defeat of her younger sister was at the Canadian Open in 2014, where she prevailed in a three-set semi-final.
Danish second seed Caroline Wozniacki beat Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena 6-4 6-1, while Ukrainian fourth seed Elina Svitolina defeated German Mona Barthel 6-4 6-3.

They met for the first time in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open which Venus won 7-6 (7/4), 6-1.
