Keeping up with the game of tennis, by the numbers. Each day at Tennis Now we’ll give you a fresh set—without any further ado, here’s what happened on Sunday and just may happen on manic Monday at the BNP Paribas Open:


Previous meetings between Venus and Serena Williams. Serena holds the 17-11 edge and has won eight of the last nine meetings between the legendary sisters. Their first meeting came over 20 years ago, in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open.


All-time Indian Wells win leader Roger Federer (57-11) will be back in action on Day 6, taking on No.25-seeded Filip Krajinovic in the second match on Stadium. Federer is 13-0 on the season and needs to reach at least the semifinals the hang on to the No.1 ranking.


Number of lifetime wins at Indian Wells for Caroline Woznacki, which is third all-time. The Dane was the 2011 champion and she has been runner-up twice.


The record of Austrian Dominic Thiem, who is 9-2 on hardcourts and looking for a best ever performance at Indian Wells this season (reached quarterfinals last season). Thiem will face Pablo Cuevas today. He owns a 2-1 lifetime record against the Uruguayan, with all of their previous battles played on clay.


The age of American Amanda Anisimova, who became the first 16-year-old to reach the BNP Paribas Open round of 16 since 2005 with an upset of Petra Kvitova on Day 5.


The winner of the first set has won all but four of the Williams sisters previous 28 encounters—something to watch for.


The last time the Williams sisters met this early in a draw. They were second round opponents at the 1998 Aussie Open, and have always met deeper than the third round in draws since—until tonight.
