And today, in her second win - this time against Germany's Carina Witthöft she wore the same outfit only this time it was in lavender. Hours earlier, across the way at Louis Armstrong Stadium, Venus Williams did her part with another straight-set victory, eliminating 40th-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy, 6-4, 7-5.

Saturday's (AEST) meeting will be the earliest the Williams sisters have met in a Grand Slam since the 1998 Australian Open.

"When I was designing [these jeans], I was inspired by that old picture from NY where the men are all sitting and all working in denim", Williams explained of the '90s-esque, medium-wash denim.

Both sisters were asked after their wins about playing each other, and each of them delivered with some amusing quotes.

On Friday, Serena and Venus Williams will face off for the 30th time on the tennis court when they meet at the U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows.

Medvedev said there were no hard feelings but admitted to Russian media on Wednesday: "He did block me on Instagram".

She said: 'I think just the umpire was probably overwhelmed by the situation.

"Bernard Giudicelli lives in another time", she said.

This was his first Grand Slam event since Wimbledon a year ago. So I think that's the toughest part for me.

However, ninth seeded Julia Goerges, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon, slumped to a 7-6 (12/10), 6-3 defeat to Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation. The younger sister, on the hunt for her record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title, delivered a strong serve and finished off the young German behind 13 aces and 30 winners.
