2002 Wimbledon Ladies Singles Final: WILLIAMS vs. WILLIAMS!

Never before in sports history has such a dynamic duo of siblings ever done what the WILLIAMS sisters have done.
Appearing in THREE Grand Slam finals in 10 months is not only unheard of, it is unTHOUGHT of as well.





Congratulations VENUS and SERENA WILLIAMS!!

Hi all you WILLIAMS fans!

Relax Teerexx, your not the one who won a semi today

I wish Serena will win on Saturday. She is the #1 right now and deserves it. If Serena also wins, correct me if i'm not wrong, but she will be the first since Graf to win Paris and London back to back? and she will win 3 of the 4 majors which would put her up with Lindsay and Martina to become the 9th woman to win all???

Go Serena, do it just like in Paris.

Yes, Tee! This is it. While the Williams detractors will be astutely looking for derisive signs, we will just sit back and enjoy.

Maybe those Williams detractors should just point their attention towards another sport or activity for the next 6 - 8 years and save themselves some anxiety.

Venus and Serena are awesome....they have proven that they are the dominate force in women's tennis. I like this....they are the best, and they show it on the court. Even the once upon a time Williams bashers have to admit that now!

"They'll never win a grandslam title" LOL!
"They'll never be ranked #1" LOL!
"They'll never win a title on clay" LOL!
"All they do is hit hard" LOL!
"Venus will never win another Tier I title" LOL!
"Venus will never beat another top-5 player" LOL!
"Venus will never win another grand slam title" LOL!

Williams' Wimbledon: Venus, Serena Score Semifinal Wins And Will Meet In Final

Photo By Fred Mullane By Richard Pagliaro
07/04/2002

In the global game of tennis, all the world's a stage, and the Williams sisters continue to upstage all the world's players. Straight-set semifinal wins by the Williams' today set up sister showdown in Saturday's Wimbledon final ? their third meeting in a major final in the past four Grand Slams.


"If I serve well I think I have a pretty good chance of winning," Serena said. "But watching Venus today, she played unbelievable. She will be tough to beat. I'm still in shock."

Serena's semifinal victory vaults her to the top spot in the WTA Tour rankings, surpassing current No. 1 Venus, when the new rankings are released on Monday.

"From the day I started playing tennis, I always wanted to be the best," Serena said. "I used to tell me dad I wanted to be No. zero because I thought zero was the highest. I'm happy to be No. 1 now. I'm still in shock."

The last time sisters contested the Wimbledon women's final was in 1884 when Maud Watson defeated sister Lilian Watson 6-8, 6-3, 6-3. Times have changed, but the Williamses commitment to winning remains unwavering.

In a rematch of last year's Wimbledon final, top-seeded Venus Williams beat Belgian Justine Henin 6-3, 6-2 to extend her Wimbledon win streak to 20 matches in advancing to her third consecutive Wimbledon final.

Second-seeded Serena Williams thoroughly thrashed French woman Amelie Mauresmo 6-2, 6-1 as the sisters who share a Palm Beach Gardens, Florida home will share Centre Court to contest Saturday's final.

Father Richard Williams predicted before Venus's first professional match that someday his daughters would secure the top two spots in the rankings and regularly meet in Grand Slam final. The daughters have fulfilled their father's prophecy with powerful play that has put them a level above their closest competition.

The sixth-seeded Henin broke Venus in the opening game of the match then played with guts and guile to hold serve in a epic second game that featured six deuces and spanned 11 minutes. The hold gave Henin a 2-0 lead and the momentum, but also served to inspire Venus and she responded by winning six of the next seven games to take the first set, 6-3.

Despite the fact that Williams connected on only 46 percent of her first serves in the second set, compared to a 70 percent first-serve ratio for Henin, the two-time defending champion did not face a break point and broke the Belgian twice in the second set. Williams' expansive reach was evident in her net play as she won nine of 10 net approaches to close out the match.

Venus has won five of her eight matches with younger sister Serena, but Serena has won their last two meetings including a 7-5, 6-3 victory in the French Open final last month. Venus defeated Serena 6-2, 6-4 in the U.S. Open final last September

Hi all you WILLIAMS fans!
I respectfully must disagree! Richard has not only predicted this for awhile...he was thinking about it a long, long time ago!
