Remember the good old days of tennis when it was quite normal to see Serena Williams and Venus Williams facing each other in a tennis grand slam final? Throughout the late 90s and early 2000s, the Williams sisters dominated the top of Women’s tennis. In fact, there was a final when their father, Richard Williams, went a bit too far and held up a sign which read: IT IS A WILLIAMS PARTY AND NO ONE IS INVITED.
In actuality such a sign by Richard went way too far but we gave him a pass because racist America was very mean to the two beautiful and very young at the time, Williams sisters. In fact, Americans would show their true colors when they would cheer for Martina Hingis over the Williams sisters even though the Venus and Serena were the Americans.
Well, a repeat of the old days could be just a few days away. Venus and Serena have both won their quarterfinals matches at Wimbledon and if they can pull off semifinal victories, we will be in for another all-Williams grand slam final.
Venus defeated Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova 7-6 (7-5) 6-2 to achieve a first semifinal at a major in six years. She will face Angelique Kerber next in the semifinals.
Serena defeated Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-4 6-4 and is awaiting her semifinal opponent.
