Monday morning was bitter sweet for Serena Williams who beat her sister, Venus at Wimledon’s Centre Court.

In the duo’s 26th career match, Serena was victorious over  her sister 6-4, 6-3. Serena will now advance to the Wimbledon quarterfinals, but beating her sister wasn’t exactly easy. “It’s hard to feel excited about [beating] someone you root for all the time,” Serena shared with BBC following the match. “I don’t know how many more moments like this that we’ll have.”

Following the match, the sisters apparently hugged and walked off the court together. “It definitely doesn’t get easier,” Serena said. “But today I was out there and I just thought, ‘Wow, I’m 33, and she just turned 35, I don’t know how many more moments like this we’ll have.’

“I plan on playing for years but you never know if we’ll have the opportunity to face each other. I just took the moment in and I thought, ‘We’re at Wimbledon.’ I remember when I was 8 years old, we dreamed of this moment and it was kind of surreal for a minute there.”

Serena even shared a sweet message on Instagram, writing:

“There’s nothing I would not do for this brave inspirational woman @venuswilliams how fortunate I am to have u as my sister.”

If Serena, 33, is victorious through the next two rounds, including the US open, she will become the first player to complete a calendar-year Grand Slam.

Congrats to the incredible athlete.

We know Mariah Carey changes managers like she changes clothes, but her next move could be her best move. According to Page Six Carey is in talks with Jay Z’s Roc Nation to manage her career.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
