Wimbledon SF: Venus & Serena d. Huber/Raymond 2-6, 6-1, 6-2

Yesss!!!!!!!!!!

That was a slow start, especially from Serena but they really pulled it together from the start of the second set. Venus was excellent today. A little scratchy on serve but overall really good. Serena picked it up when she needed to and really helped Venus out when her serve went off a bit.

Raymond was really good as well. She was a thorn in the sisters' side at times. I think Huber got a little scared when Venus started going for her and Raymond!

Great to see them make the doubles final without much match play together prior to the tournament. Good luck Serena and Venus!

It warms the heart to see the reaction on Venus' face and how well she can still play.

Wow, once she got started in that second set, Venus really was the best player out there today! Everything was working perfectly, except for her second serve until the end.
I'm very happy for her and it was a joy to watch her play today

Venus was on FIYAH!!!! Serena picked it up mid second set. Great win. Our little doubles specialist made us so proud.

Lisa/Liezel Some of those points were amazing.

missed most of the first set, but agree that Venus came to play in second and third set and Serena found her serve.

Well deserved--defeats the #1 team!
