Shame Venus lost that mixed doubles final, then both of them would have won the singles, doubles and mixed championships :eek: I hopes she goes for it again...

I know this has nothing to do with Williams sister domination of the oule wimbers but an interesting factoid is that the 2004, 2005, 2006 & 2007 womens finals all ended with a forehand in the net...i seen the match points of 04, and 05 a while back...it's just quite interesting...or maybe not lol....didn't see 2004..match point though.

Serena needs to STEP it up! She hasn't been in a Wimbledon final for 3 years! :p

Actually I think that Vee might have wanted to not win the title with the Bryan brother who told her right before they played he wanted to play with someone else for the US Open. It was something like that. It sounded like a pay back.

Vee would never do that.. she wanted to win badly. Her partner had just finished the men's final though(which IMO is just plain unfair scheduling :fiery: ) so he wasn't near 100%
