Wimbledon 2008: Serena Williams vs Venus Williams

Another all-Williams Grand Slam final will be showcased tomorrow at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London in the women’s singles final of Wimbledon 2008. This is going to be the third time, Venus Williams and Serena Williams will take on each other in the final of Wimbledon. In the previous two occasions, Serena Williams emerged winner. All Williams final is nothing new to the tennis fans as the two sisters faced each other on six occasions in grand slam finals with Serena winning five and Venus winning once. However, Wimbledon 2008 is going to be the first grand slam final to feature the two sisters since they met in Wimbledon 2003 last time.

Serena and Venus both are at their prime now and neither of them dropped any set in the tournament en route to final. So, an exciting final seems to be waiting there on 5 July 2008. Serena Williams defeated China’s surprise package Zheng Jie in the semi final before Venus Williams had won over Russia’s Elena Dementieva in the first semi final.

No doubt, father Richard Williams will face the pleasant-problem to choose between his two daughters. However, Richard could be happy thinking that the women’s singles title of Wimbledon 2008 will for sure go to his home. Tennis fans from U.S.A will also have the same kind of feeling during the match because they know that the title will go to U.S.A, no matter whoever wins the match.

Serena Williams and Venus Williams faced each other 16 times in which Serena emerged winner in 9 matches and Venus won 7 matches. Serena is the only active women’s player who has career grand slam to her credit. Serena has 8 grand slam titles so far, while Venus could manage to win six grand slam titles. However, when it comes to Wimbledon, Venus seems to be more impressive than her younger sister. Venus won Wimbledon title four times till date and she is the reigning champion of Wimbledon, whereas Serena won only 2 Wimbledon titles in her career.

Venus and Serena played five grand slam tournament finals during 2002-2003. At one point, it seemed that Venus-Serena final in grand slam tournament was going to become a rule. However, over the last few years, their dominance diminished significantly, but now with another All-Williams final approaching, it seems that the two sisters are going to revive their career and bring back their glorious days on court.

I will really be surprised to see if the two sisters fail to present with an exciting match tomorrow, if not a classic match. Both the players are in good form and would not leave any ground without bringing out the best of each other. Serena may have better success in All-Williams final, but I think, Venus also has equal chance in the match. I hope to see a classic match tomorrow and also hope Richard Williams will enjoy the match wishing both of his daughters all the best in the final.
