Serena Triumphs in Sister Semi

Sunday, March 9, 2008

Serena Triumps in Sister SemiThey last met at the U. S. Open in 2005 where Venus defeated Serena 7-6, 6-2. There's nothing new about seeing both of these former world no. 1's battle it out, with the exception of their being sisters, and that always makes it a bit more exciting. On the other hand, there's a bit of a down side for me. I don't like to see either one of the sisters lose, let alone to each other.

At the Bangalore Open in India on Saturday, American superstars Venus and Serena Williams met in a semifinal match. Serena came away the victor by defeating big sis' 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(4).

Venus In Bangalore Semi

After winning the quarterfinal match that put her into this semifinal Serena laughed and said, "She is a tough player and the only chance of beating her is when she is injured. I want her leg to be broken."

"Venus is nice to me all the time except when she is on court. I am also very competitive and I always want to win. We will have fun tomorrow."

Venus said, "Would have been nice if we'd me in the final ... I'm happy that one of us will be in the final."

This is what helps me through it, the sisters have a wonderful love for each other and a tremendous perspective on where they begin and where the game ends.

After Saturday's match Serena said, "It was a close match, although we both weren't at our best ... My serve let me down on match point"

At one point during the tie-break Venus held match point, but committed an error allowing Serena to come even, surpass her and take the match.

Serena, will face Patty Schnyder in the final.
