Yesssss!!!!!!! 5 Wimbledon titles all around!!

Great play from the sisters. I'm so glad that Venus's serve was solid. That defensive point from Venus was amazing! So funny.

The Czechs played very well but the sisters really made the most of their opportunities.

NID. Hlavackova was the first one who lost serve then the result was NID.
First set was really boring cause HH couldn't rally much

No, that was meeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

Tracey Austin mentioned that Venus might get all her first serves in. Then she went on to hit two more second serves but then she finished it off in style with an ace. Nice to see her serve to love three times in this match.

Loved the ace to win and the squeal :hearts: Venus is just too lovely.

Shame I missed most of this - seems like it was good quality and played in a good spirit from both teams. Well played to the Czechs :yeah:

Their mother looked like it was a chore to be there.

That's because she's Queen Oracene and she had no chance for her regular afternoon nap during the matches! :lol:

Where was that Venus Williams in round one?!
Silly post. She was clearly a mess in both singles and doubles early rounds. She just played herself into form over the fortnight. We'll see if she can take this to the singles court.

She was also clearly having an off day in her first round singles match. She looked so fatigued, especially between points.

A really good hard-hitting contest. Delighted for Venus/Serena! :banana: What an awesome fortnight!

Considering the surface, Andi/Lucie will be tough to beat at the YEC assuming they qualify.

So inspiring and beautiful. The Williams sisters have just dominated Wimbledon so impressively. I am in awe.

P.S. Queen Vee does not need a Mixed Double title. That discipline is for peasants. ;)

Awesome win for the ladies. Watching this on BBC Two/One last night, it was great to see the ladies focused and playing some great tennis. They had to keep their concentration up especially on serve because they could have easily have lost a set if they dropped their serve (given how huge Hradecka was serving). But instead they were able to hold, only gave the team one bp and took their opportunites well.

It was great that Venus got a title out of this Wimbledon too. She looked very good the last two doubles matches. Hopefully she will be able to use this as a springboard for her game in general.

Good luck at the Olympics ladies :yeah:

Just a shame BBC One stopped their coverage as soon as the match finished. Would have liked to have seen the trophy ceremony.

I'd say she was great in the last three doubles matches. She was the standout player of the SF and probably of the final too (although to a lesser degree as everyone played very well in the final)

Yeah, BBC were going to stay with the final until 11:00pm if it went that long but as soon as the sisters won, they cut coverage, talked about Murray for a couple of minutes :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: and then started the news at 10:53 or something!! I really wished they'd showed the trophy presentation ceremony.

Does anyone know if it's online anywhere?



Actually, here's a video of the trophy presentation:
