Williams Sisters

I'm betting on a fourth Venus v Serena Wimbledon final on Saturday and I really wouldn't like to predict the winner.

Re: Williams Sisters

and I don't think anything would bore me more, which is a shame.
The mens competition seems to be producing much closer games.

Re: Williams Sisters

You could be right on them both getting there.  This morning's odds are 11/10 for it to happen.

Venus sure looked good and will take some stopping.

Re: Williams Sisters

The Seedings committee have got it right this year as far as the Ladies go with all the top four seeds making it through to the semi-finals.

Re: Williams Sisters

Both Williams girls have played well this afternoon and I can't see anyone stopping them getting through to Saturday's final Smiley

Re: Williams Sisters

So you're the one who's driven the odds down to 8/13 (1.6 decimal)  Wink Wink

Re: Williams Sisters

I think not!!  With only 4 challengers left, and as the sisters can't meet in the semi's, it looks a safe bet that they'll meet in the final, particularly as both are former champions.

Re: Williams Sisters

They're sisters? They're built like men, I thought it was odd that two guys were playing in the womens competition.
But seriously it is a bit dull to see them in the final again. They interviewed venus after her game in the QF's and I think she was putting on the out of breath look.
They've been storming through with scores of 6-2 6-1, then the interviewer asks how the game went and whether or not it was tough. A hard question considering the true answer could only be 'no, she offered me no competition whatsoever'. Instead she did a good job of being diplomatic, and quite fairly since against anyone else it likely would have been a tightly fought contest.

Re: Williams Sisters

You can't take it from them on results.  They only play about 12 of the mandatory matches now but still turn up at the Grand Slams and manage to perform well.  They are also a well rounded pair of girls who have outside interests mainly in their own fashion businesses.

Re: Williams Sisters

Dementieva takes the first set on a tiebreak from Serena.    No matter what Tracey Austin might say, the Dementieva serve has improved substantially since last year and she looks like she could beat Serena.     However write off a Williams sister at your peril!!

Re: Williams Sisters

What a fantastic match and all credit to a marvellous performance from Dementieva who, IMHO, was unlucky not to win.  One Williams sister makes the final.

Re: Williams Sisters
