now that serena has 4 wimbledon titles, is venus till the wimbledon queen?

serena's serving was better than any women in a tournament,serve broken just 3 times the entire tournament, did not lose a single set and has won 4 wimbledon titles in 9 years(venus has 2)and she has won the last two.
so in terms to the active players is serena the wimbledon queen or is venus ?

Queen of Wimbledon - Martina Navratilova
In this generation, so far Venus but if Serena can still win one/two more, provided Venus won't win any in the future, then it's definitely Serena.

If Serena wins one more then she will take that title away from Venus.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

the queen sorry to disappoint the thread starter will always be Navratilova but Serena is a year younger than Venus and if she stays healthy next year;I see her not only tying Venus but possibly winning her 6th Wimbledon in 2012

Says who...you? l.o.l

Last time I checked five and five were equal numbers. How can you jump and say that means Serena is better if she only ties Venus? Not to mention Venus has been in the final a few more times.

Queen Venus Williams Wisest, most experienced, respected, gracious and most intimidating player on the tour Veelieve!

Navratilova is the Queen of Wimbledon and probably no one wil approach her success here.
But Serena is not that far of Venus for the title of best grass player of her generation after her win today (at least in terms of achievements).

Venus is still miles ahead... I think she's been in the final 3 more times.
