Well done sisters. Venus carried the team most of the way.

Agreed. I think Serena was deservedly tired. Only 4 aces for the match for the Williams sisters.


Tough day for Kirilenko. She loses the bronze this morning. And she out of the doubles competition in the afternoon.

At this point it would be good for her to walk away with something.

This was a tough match for the Russians. Both sets could have gone either way. The WIlliams sisters have not been pushed like this all tournament. I think the Russians fought off 6 or 7 match points in set 2. The contest was closer than the straight set victory makes it appear.

Good enough from the sisters. I felt the scoreline would be like this.

Also, Serena is now playing to become only the third player to win Olympic gold medals in both singles and doubles at the same Olympic Games, after Venus in 2000 and Helen Wills Moody in 1924!!!

Serena was definitely not all there. Venus has made a bunch of important points. She missed some, but not nearly as many as Serena did.
Let's hope that after the celebration and good rest Serena steps it up for the finals.

To some degree, but at the same time the Russians didn't get a single break point, and the Williams sisters won 80-65 in total points. The Russians did well to hang on to serve but even if they managed to push either set to a tiebreak, I had little reason to think they'd pull those out.

The Russians did break each of the Williams sisters at Wimbledon this year, but they were both serving and playing much better today. I still think Maria & Nadia are the 2nd-best team in the world, and I hope they can at least get the bronze tomorrow.
