Venus Williams wins 5th Wimbledon singles title
SATURDAY – Venus Williams defeated her sister Serena for the 2nd time in a major tennis tournament, winning in two sets, 7-5, 6-4. Venus had lost the last 5 major finals against her sister, in the 2002 French Open, 2002 Wimbledon, 2002 U.S. Open, 2003 Australian Open, and 2003 Wimbledon.
There is not much to say about this match except traditionally Venus’ main opponent has been herself. Today, she held herself together and kept the unforced errors to a minimum. V. Williams restrained her excitement after winning her 6th and final game in the 2nd set. I sometimes wonder if Venus and Serena hold two straws before their match to decide which sister gets to win. But seriously, congratulations to the Williams sisters. I’m sure their Mom and Dad will have to see-saw between joy and sorrow.
