Senior sister, Venus Willaims, defeated (July 5) her younger sister Serena Williams (7-5, 6-4) to capture the Wimbledon female tennis championship title for 2008 – her fifth Wimbledon title and her seventh Grand Slam. Serena has won eight Grand Slams (an impressive family record). This was Venus’ victory over Serena since 2001 and brings their career record head to head at 8-8. Their father Richard stayed away from the match as he did not want to watch her daughters square off against each other. Nevermind, their mother Oracene stayed around to give motherly succour to the talented siblings. Way to go – keep making us proud, sisters.
