Serena Williams

In a fairly lopsided and boring final she beat her sister Venus 7-6 6-2. It was their 8th grand slam final against each other and Serena has won 6. In their total matches played against each other she leads her older sister now with 11.


The first set both women started off very well, both serving fantastic and Serena was only troubled once. At 3-4 Venus had 2 breakpoints but after losing both chances she never seemed close to winning again. Serena finished the set with a great lob. The second set was pretty much a snooze, Venus made lots of errors and never seemed to have another game plan and kept getting few balls back at Serena’s serve. It’s a pity we could not see the Venus from Thursday who only made 1 unforced error. Yesterday she made 18. When they play each other almost every single time one of them does not play their best and that’s a shame. Of course they try, it just doesn’t seem to work. I think I like Venus a little more(don’t like either one of them a lot, but Serena is the best player so I am not bummed. All in all it was a great Wimbledon.
