Sports channels will be having a field day this Saturday, July 4th as Venus and Serena Williams meet up in their fourth all-sister Wimbledon final in eight years. These meet-ups come around as rarely as the Olympics and promise an equally dynamic and exciting show. You know the Williams women are willing to play their hearts out, but who will win? Take a look at their records and decide for yourself:
-The sisters have met in the final at the All England Club three previous times. Serena won in 2002 and ’03, while Venus won in ’08.
-They’ve met 20 times in competitive matches, with each sister winning 10 times. But Serena holds a 6-5 advantage in Grand Slam meetings, including five wins in their seven clashes in finals.
-Venus, the two-time defending champion, needed just 51 minutes to dispense of the top-ranked Safina, while Serena needed two hours and 49 minutes to secure her victory against fourth-seated Elena Dementieva.
If you don’t want to pick a side, cheer on the duo and serve up some snacks while they serve up some heat on the court. ~Hannah
