Williams Sisters Never to Meet Again

The Williams sisters would face each other at the ongoing Wimbledon Grand Slam on Monday for the first time since 2009 and reports suggest that this might be their last meeting.
 The two Americans have dominated women’s tennis for a generation and have won 27 Grand Slam title between them including10 at Wimbledon.

Top seed Serena who is chasing her fourth consecutive Grand Slam has claimed that her in-form elder sister Venus will be the favourite when both of them play each other in the last 16. The clue that this could be the last game were they would face each was given when Venus coach David Witt said in an interview “the message is, enjoy them while we’ve got them, you’ll never see something like this again.

The first time they met at the Wimbledon was in the 2000 semi-finals where Venus won the match as she later won the tournament, making it her first Grand Slam title though rumour has it that the win was arranged. Now, Venus is the only thing that is standing in the way of her sister’s bid to complete the third leg of a historic Grand Slam calendar. The meeting on Monday would be their first since Venus beat Serena in August at Montreal and it happens to be the third meeting in the last six seasons.

Venus who took a break from tennis as she recovered from Sjogren’s syndrome won her fifth Wimbledon title and the last Major title on this ground in 2008. And at this point Serena has even claimed that “She is in better form than I am and I expect more people to be rooting for Venus. I mean, she’s been through so much. She’s had a wonderful story. She’s been so inspiring to me. She’s just an incredible individual.”
