View Full Version : Wimbledon SF: Venus & Serena d. Huber/Raymond 2-6, 6-1, 6-2

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:53 PM

That was a slow start, especially from Serena but they really pulled it together from the start of the second set. Venus was excellent today. A little scratchy on serve but overall really good. Serena picked it up when she needed to and really helped Venus out when her serve went off a bit.

Raymond was really good as well. She was a thorn in the sisters' side at times. I think Huber got a little scared when Venus started going for her and Raymond!

Always nice to see Huber lose hahaha

Sisters, go and win the title!!!

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:54 PM
That's the Venus Williams we want to see!!!! Great job, Vee and Rena!! Take home the singles and doubles title tomorrow and GOLD in the Olympics.

Missed the first set because of Djoko and Fed, but so so so happy :bounce:

Venus :worship: Best player out there by far and you could tell how much she wanted this :hug: Rena wasn't too bad herself :p

Liezel/Lisa :hug:

Great to see them make the doubles final without much match play together prior to the tournament. Good luck Serena and Venus!

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:55 PM
It warms the heart to see the reaction on Venus' face and how well she can still play.

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:55 PM
Venus was amazing :hearts: She was really holding the team up, amazing :yeah:

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:55 PM
Yes! Couldn't see it, but heard Vee was en fuego in the last two sets.

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:55 PM
Venus looked so pumped and excited after the match point :) Good win.

So happy to see them in the finals.

Another Williams sweep, I hope!

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:57 PM
Wow, once she got started in that second set, Venus really was the best player out there today! Everything was working perfectly, except for her second serve until the end.
I'm very happy for her and it was a joy to watch her play today :)

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:57 PM
Venus was on FIYAH!!!! Serena picked it up mid second set. Great win. Our little doubles specialist made us so proud.

Lisa/Liezel:hug: Some of those points were amazing.

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:58 PM
Venus was amazing :hearts: She was really holding the team up, amazing :yeah:

missed most of the first set, but agree that Venus came to play in second and third set and Serena found her serve.

Well deserved--defeats the #1 team!

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:58 PM
Good win! Good luck in the final :cheer:
Venus please play like this in singles too.

Jul 6th, 2012, 04:58 PM

The last two sets were an absolute demolition job. Venus was unreal - she almost single-handedly breadsticked the #1 team. Serena improved in set 3 and digged V out of a couple of DF-riddled service games with some great volleys. Best doubles team ever.

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:02 PM
Well done Serenus. They can still play doubles till 2020

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:04 PM
Venus played out of her mind!!!! Her serving may have gone off but she was there for her sis. If she can bring this to her singles shes still hard to beat. I know she still has great tennis left in her

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:12 PM
I hope they play Schiavone/Penneta in the final. It will be a firecracker with all that personality on one court.

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:21 PM
I agree that this was a good sign that Venus still has great tennis left in her. She really wanted this win. She was quite emphatic towards the end. More importantly, she played very cleanly and kept her serve together on the important points.

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:26 PM
Entertaining match from both teams.

WTG Team Williams! Bring the title on home now!

Good fight Huber/Raymond!

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:43 PM
Good to hear Venus played well :)

Jul 6th, 2012, 05:51 PM
That's how my girls do it! x

number 1 couple in the world :spit:

Jul 6th, 2012, 06:33 PM
Venus, I wanna see that fire every single time you step foot on the court:hearts:
Well done ladies!! Get that title:bounce:

Jul 6th, 2012, 06:33 PM
Step. Never in doubt, though.

Bye, Huber. Bitch.

Jul 6th, 2012, 06:58 PM
That was a really good match and Venus was just amazing. Venus and Serena really make a great team so glad they are in another Wimbledon final.

Jul 6th, 2012, 08:36 PM
Well done WS. Good fighting Venus. Now take the title.

Jul 6th, 2012, 09:13 PM
Huber wearing a gumshield and padding :hysteric:

Well done ladies :cheer: :worship:

Jul 6th, 2012, 09:23 PM
:lol: Huber was afraid!

Jul 6th, 2012, 09:28 PM
Congrats ladies on beating to the top seeds. :)

Now go and win the title. :angel::angel:

Jul 6th, 2012, 10:38 PM
Serenus :inlove:

Jul 7th, 2012, 03:45 AM
Great great win. A bit nervous at first when Serena couldn't put much pace on her serve but I think that was precautionary.

Jul 7th, 2012, 01:19 PM
This may be what Vee needs to get a FINAL kick in her and ignite some fire in her game. So glad to hear she played well, superb stuff.

I couldn't watch sadly :(

Very well done though, good stuff ! Someone please record doubles too!!

Jul 7th, 2012, 01:45 PM
Congrats V/S :bowdown:

Jul 7th, 2012, 05:03 PM
Who has won the Wimbledon doubles 5 or more time?? Or will the sisters break it too?>

Jul 7th, 2012, 10:55 PM
Congrats sistas!!

5/5/5 --- Each have 5 Singles Wimbledon titles, and 5 Wimbledon Doubles titles.


History books will record a feat that may never happen again. :bounce: :bounce:
