Chalk one up for Venus.

Venus Williams defeated her sister Serena in straight sets (6-3, 6-4) in third-round action at Indian Wells on Monday night, recording only her second win in the family affair since 2014.

The tournament was Serena's official return to tour after giving birth to her daughter, and after more than a year away, there's clearly some rust.

"It was a treat for everyone to see this match," Venus said. "I'm just lucky I've played more matches than her."

Venus' tournament continues Tuesday.
