First they’ll be playing against each other at the Centre Court, trying to beat each other for the prestigious Wimbledon women singles title, which is their 7th all-in-the-family final at a Grand Slam tournament, but first since 2003.
Then they’ll pair up to play side-by-side in the women’s doubles final. “This is what we’ve been aiming for,” Venus said. “We haven’t reached this achievement in a few years now.”
Venus is chasing for her fifth Wimbledon championship and second in a row. The last woman to successfully defend her title at the All England Club is Serena, who won the tournament in 2002 and 2003, beating Venus in each final.
Currently, Serena holds a 5-1 edge in Grand Slam finals, and 8-7 overall.
My bet would be on Venus winning it back to back at the Wimbledon Championship.
