It's an all Williams final at Wimbledon again
For the second year in a row and fourth time overall it is a Williams sisters final at Wimbledon. Serena had the toughest battle surviving a marathon semifinal match with Elena Dementieva 6-7, 7-5, 8-6 in just under three hours of tennis. It was the longest Wimbledon semifinal in 40 years. Dementieva had a match point which Williams survived.
Meanwhile, Venus crushed Dinara Safina in straight sets 6-0, 6-1. The match only took 51 minutes. The easy semifinal should benefit Venus as Serena had to expend immense energy in her semifinal match. Venus has won Wimbledom five times previously while Serena has two titles to her credit. The Wimbledon Final will be Saturday fittingly on the 4th of July.
Former tennis superstar Pete Sampras says most of his tennis trophies and other tennis memorabilia was stolen from a West Los Angeles public storage facility.
