Re: S2 Wk.9 Barcelona Ladies Open-Barcelona(Semifinals posted!!!)

Williams Family Final

- 5th-seeded Serena Williams and 6th-seeded Venus Williams celebrate their victories over Russians Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko to set up the first meeting between the sisters, in the finals of the Ladie's Barcelona Open. -

The stage for the first meeting between sisters Venus and Serena Williams has been set; the Championship match for the Ladie's Barcelona Open title. Serena who is the 5th-seed of the tournament stunned world number 2 Maria Sharapova, 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4 and Venus who is the 6th-seed knocked out Dubai champ Maria Kirilenko, 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4 to win the battle of the Williams' vs. the Maria's. Venus who has completed a comeback by winning a title last week in Acapulco and is now in another final here is the favorite to win the match.

"It's really exciting to be playing Serena in a final. She's such a great player and she makes me bring out my best and I'm glad we finally get to play against each other on the tour. It's a little sad that only one of us can win but I'm hoping it well be me." Venus said in a prematch interview.

"Well you know Venus has been playing really good lately but I think that I can beat her. She beens playing a lot lately and I feel that if I come out aggressive that I'll be able to over power here which isn't an easy thing to do. It's great to once again be in the finals of a tournament and I'm really excited to try and capture my third title. It would be great and whichever one of us wins is going to be at 9 and I dont really want to make the finals of a tournament and go down one rankings. -Laughs-" Serena commented.

Venus saved a match point in the second set her match against Maria Kirilenko. The Russian was up 6-3, 6-5 in the second set and had a match point on the Williams serve. Williams connected with a powerful 128 mph that Kirilenko hit way out wide. In the tiebreaker, Venus controlled rallies and won 7-3 and went on to take the third set. Serena faced a tough start from Sharapova going up 4-0 in the opening set the being taken to a tiebreak but she didn't seem bother when she dominate 7-1. Sharapova took the second set but in the younger Williams sister proved too much for her in the third and won 6-4 to advance to the finals.


- Nicole Vaidisova falls to her knees after defeating top-seeded doubles team, Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic. Carolina Wozniacki accepts the doubles trophy for the team. -

In a very honorable mention. One of the newest players to the E.W.T.A, Caroline Wozniacki who had to battle past her doubles partner in the opening round of the tournament didn't leave Barcelona empty handed. The Danish dame and parter Nicole Vaidisova won their qualifying match into the doubles draw and made a Cinderella run which including defeating the top seeded team in the finals where they captured their first career doubles title. Congrats to Caroline and Nicole, the 2009 Barcelona Ladie's Open Doubles Champions.

Now who will be the singles champion? Will it be former world's number one, winner of 3 singles titles and riding a current 7 match win streak, and current world's number 10, Venus Williams? Or will it be her younger sister, winner of 2 singles titles and out with a thirst for her third, Serena Williams? The first ever, all-Williams final, tune in to find out who wins the sister showdown!

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Game Set and CHAMPIONSHIP
S.Williams

Stunning performence from the youner Williams, who won this tournament unexpectedly and won over her sister, who actually was in a 9-match win streak, the most winning streak in this season so far!! Serena definitely will be very delighted with such performence, and this is only her second title in her career, hope you can keep going with this kind of form and win more titles!! Bad luck Venus, who seemed to be pretty tired in this final match, but still a very good showdown from you as you actually played so many matches in these two weeks, hope you can also keep this form and make more Williams-finals in this season!!

Ladies and Gentlemen,
please congratulate our Season 2 Barcelona Ladies Open champion!!!
Miss Serena Williams from the United States!!!
And the runner-up, Miss Venus Williams from the United States!!!
