For the second year in a row the mighty Williams sisters will face each other in the final of Wimbledon.
Serena Williams won the longest women’s semifinal at Wimbledon in the era of Open tennis and got one step away from getting another make-up holder (she stores her make-up brushes in her numerous trophies). However, that one step is a huge one. Even though two-time Wimbledon champion Serena will be playing her fifth Wimbledon final, her sister Venus has won the prestigious title as much as five times, having played the final seven times so far, and is twice defending champion this year.
Second seed Serena was one point from losing to fourth-seeded Elena Dementieva of Russia, but as always with Serena, it’s never over till it’s over, and the American won the women’s match of Wimbledon 2009 6-7(4) 7-5 8-6. Williams was down 4-5, 30-40 in the final set, before she leveled at 5-5. In the 13th game she broke Dementieva and then held on to her own serve to win in 2 hours and 49 minutes.
In the other semifinal, fourth seed Venus Williams comfortably defeated top seed and world No.1 Dinara Safina of Russia 6-1 6-0 in only 51 minutes.
Serena and Venus Williams have combined for seven of the last nine Wimbledon titles. Impressive!
I really felt for both Safina and Dementieva today. Elena could have won her match, but I think she suffers, as do many on the tour, from poor mental strength
What does it say about the WTA rankings system that the supposed best player in the world gets beaten 6-0, 6-1?
I Think The Williams Sisters Not Only Deserve To Be On Top But Will Stay On Top For Quite Some Time.As For Who Will Win Could Go Either Way But I Think Serena Wants It More. Does Anyone Know Where To Buy Eleven Clothing Line Now That Steve And Barry’s Is Gone?
I hope Venus wins she has been playing great throughout the event.
Molly, sorry, I’m not sure where you can buy the Eleven clothes now.
From Venus’s official website of course- I was bombarded with advertisements for ‘V-nect EleVEN white t-shirts’, the last time I tried to navigate on her menu page.
tennis is my favourite I like maria sharapova please send me mail addreaa of Alisa kleybanova
Serena and venus are simply the best- they have done more for womens tennis in the past tweny years. The are the Queens of tennis-No other american players or players from other countries have done what the williams sisters have done for the game of tennis. They brought power-best serves from serena-just plain excitement to the game-that is surely missed from the past tournaments that have been played this year.
