Venus & Serena Clean Up At Wimbeldon
Serena and Venus Williams went head to head at Wimbledon’s women’s singles final this weekend with Serena ultimately winning 7-6, 6-2. The win is the 11th grand slam title for Serena. She is also the current winner of three titles from the Australian Open, the U.S. Open and now Wimbledon. Just last year, the exact opposite happened when Venus beat Serena 7-6, 6-2 in the singles. When the two-time defending champ was asked if it was easier or harder to lose to a sibling Venus replied:
“There’s no ‘easy’ to losing, especially when it’s so close to the crown.”
Despite her disappointment, Venus paired up with her sister later that day and won the Women’s Double Finals against Rennae Stubbs and Samantha Stosur of Australia 7-6, 6-4.
When asked how she felt, Serena replied, “”I’m really excited to have doubles titles, I rack ‘em up.”
Serena won $1.23 million for her Wimbledon win while the two sisters shared around $460,000 for the doubles.
