Will Venus Williams raise a trophy tomorrow after all?

Has anyone been so excited about a mixed doubles final as they are now? I can't remember any, can you?

Go Venus. She came in saying she wanted this, so let's hope she gets it.

It would be pretty impressive to complete her career slam in mixed doubles--a goal she has set for herself!

Yes I'm totally excited about the mixed doubles it's been a unreal ride. Venus has erased all the drama and pain from her singles lost. She has never won the mixed so this is indeed a nice treat. Venus and Bob are totally amazing.

Watched the Black/Black game earlier, wasn't too impressed, I've seen them play a lot better. Ram/Bepa have played really well when I've seen them, hope they get the semi tom.
The final will be a cracking match either way.

Ye the blacks would be very tough, Cara is really something, she is very dangerous at net but if it was the final it would be a great match it think with Vee/Bob holding the trophy, Vee came here for a Wimbledon title and she aint leavin without one

Zvonereva against Navy/partner (forgot who he was) was brilliant. She was really good. She hit some great lobs and was perhaps the player of the match.

I'm going with VeeBob... they're the seed slayers.

Whoever faces them in the final will make excellent opponents but I hope it's a straight sets victory for Team Willyan.

Please do a chest bump!!!

They've been playing an incredible tournament. It would be amazing to see them go all the way.

It wouldn't be complete until
she won the US Open should
they win tommorrow.

Regardless, I think Venus has found her
perminent MD's partner if she wants.
