[Dallas, TX – July 6th, 2015]
Serena Williams extended her mastery over big sister Venus. The battle dates back long ago as kids and it still exciting to see two of the greatest tennis players duke it out on an early Monday morning.
The win sent the top-ranked Serena into the Wimbledon quarterfinals as she bids for a fourth straight Grand Slam title, a feat last accomplished by the younger Williams in 2003.
In the 26th career meeting between the siblings, Serena dominated with her steady serve and big hitting from the back of the court to win 6-4, 6-3. Monday’s victory improved her career record against Venus to 15-11, including 8-5 in Grand Slams and 4-2 at Wimbledon. This was the sisters’ first meeting at a major since the 2009 Wimbledon final, which was won by Serena.
“It definitely doesn’t get easier,” Serena said. “But today I was out there and I just thought, ‘Wow, I’m 33, and she just turned 35, I don’t know how many more moments like this we’ll have.’
