If you wonder why I call The Championships ‘Williams’-don, its because if you peruse the champions list in the singles and doubles ranks you’ll see the Williams name prominently displayed multiple times. It’s also the major Grand Slam tourney in which the Williams sisters have had the most success.
Even the ladies singles championship trophy is named the Venus (Williams) Rosewater Dish
It’s gonna be a bad weekend for the Williams haters because Serena is another step closer to collecting her fifth Wimbledon Ladies singles title and matching Big Sis. In her semifinal match she broke the Wimbledon aces record she just set a few days ago in obliterating one time world number one player Victoria Azarenka of Belarus in straight sets 6-3,7-6 (8-6).
She served a record 24 aces, with the 24th one coming on match point. It also tied the all time WTA record for aces served in a two set match and ensured she’d reach her seventh ‘Williams’-don final.
Serena is 9-1 against Azarenka and as has been the case in this 2012 Wimbledon tournament Little Sis got off to another fast first set start. She took 33 minutes to win it before Azarenka pulled up the big girl panties and dug in to fight in the second set.
But with the serving clinic Serena was putting on at Centre Court yesterday there was no way she was going to be beaten.
She faces Poland’s Agniezska Radwanska for the Ladies singles title Saturday
And for you people who like hatin’ on any tennis success the Williams sisters have, here’s some more Hater Tots fresh out of the grease for y’all to chew on.
Serena then teamed up with Big Sis in their Ladies doubles quarterfinal a few hours later to make quick 6-1, 6-1 work of American doubles duo Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears with the match taking less than an hour to complete. My fave tennis playing siblings will now face fellow Americans and number one doubles seeds Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond in the doubles semis and setting up an opportunity for the Williams sisters to win their 13th Grand Slam doubles title should they beat Huber and Raymond..
