Venus and Serena Williams will play against each other for the first time in more than three years in the semi-finals of the Family Circle Cup.

Both completed two matches on Friday to get the rain-affected event back on schedule in Charleston, South Carolina.


Defending champion Serena, who holds a 13-10 record against her elder sister, beat qualifier Mallory Burdette 6-4 6-2 and sixth seed Lucie Safarova 6-4 6-1.

Venus overcame Varvara Lepchenko 6-2 4-6 6-2 and Madison Keys 6-4 6-4.

The Williams sisters have not gone head-to-head on tour since Serena beat Venus in the final of the season-ending WTA Championships in 2009.

World number one Serena, 31, has won the last four meetings against 32-year-old Venus, who is now ranked 24th.
