Venus Williams defeated injured sister Serena 6-4, 7-5 in an exhibition match Thursday night. Serena was obviously limited by the abdominal-muscle injury sustained earlier in the week in the WTA Championship final with Wimbledon champ Maria Sharapova. Her serve was noticeably weakened, and she grimaced after several shots, but still was competitive.
