Wimbledon Final: Venus & Serena d. Hradecka/Hlavackova 7-5, 6-4

Yesssss!!!!!!! 5 Wimbledon titles all around!!

Great play from the sisters. I'm so glad that Venus's serve was solid. That defensive point from Venus was amazing! So funny.

The Czechs played very well but the sisters really made the most of their opportunities.

NID. Hlavackova was the first one who lost serve then the result was NID.
First set was really boring cause HH couldn't rally much

No, that was meeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tracey Austin mentioned that Venus might get all her first serves in. Then she went on to hit two more second serves but then she finished it off in style with an ace. Nice to see her serve to love three times in this match.

Loved the ace to win and the squeal Venus is just too lovely.

Shame I missed most of this - seems like it was good quality and played in a good spirit from both teams. Well played to the Czechs
