serena beats venus at wimbledon


After six years, Serena Williams has beat sister Venus in the Venus Rosewater Dish again.

Britain Wimbledon Tennis

In the fourth all-Williams final at Wimbledon, Serena beat her sister Venus 7-6 (3), 6-2 on Saturday for her third title and 11th Grand Slamchampionship.

“It feels so amazing,” Serena said. “I’m so blessed. I feel like I shouldn’t be holding the trophy. I can’t believe I’m holding it. It’s named for Venus and she always wins.”

Serena came out on top by out-serving her big sister, lifting her game in the tiebreaker and dictating play throughout the second set, finally winning when five-time champion Venus slapped a backhand into the net on the fourth match point.

Serena beat Venus in the 2002 and 2003 finals, before Venus prevailed in last year’s championship match. Venus was attempting to become the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1991-93 to win Wimbledon three years in a row.

When the match was won, Venus gave Serena a pat on the back.

“I didn’t think about Venus at all today,” Serena said. “I just saw her as an opponent. At one point, after the first set, I looked on the side of the court at the stats, and it was like ‘Williams, Williams.’ I couldn’t figure out which was which.”
