Venus to face Suarez Navarro next

Venus to face Suarez Navarro next

Venus will be up against 24th seed Carla Suarez Navarro next.

Three-time Miami Open champion Venus is making her record 20th Miami appearance.

The veteran knows that she faces a tougher test against Navarro.

"She's crafty, feisty, and competitive. She plays maybe a little more topspin than others and then some slice. So it's a little bit atypical game," said Venus.

Serena to be in action from second round

23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams will start her Miami Open campaign from the second round. She will be up against Sweden's Rebecca Peterson, who eliminated Laura Siegemund 6-1, 5-7, 7-5.
