Milan:

Francesca Schiavone defeated both Venus and Serena Williams in an exhibition in Milan on Saturday.

Schiavone defeated Venus 7-5, 7-3, then countered a strong comeback from Serena to defeat the younger sibling 7-3, 10-8, 8-6.

Flavia Pennetta also beat Venus, whose strap broke on her dress before a sellout crowd of 11,000. Pennetta lost to Serena.

The Williams sisters won the doubles 3-7, 8-6, 8-6.

Venus has played just once since pulling out of the U.S. Open three months ago because of an immune system disease. Venus defeated Serena in an exhibition match in Colombia last week.
