Serena Copies Venus Again

Serena Williams won her 5th Wimbledon title on Saturday, matching big sister Venus Willaims. Serena joked that she's always wanted to do what bigger sister Venus has done. She did just that, making the William's sisters, arguably the greatest sports sibling duo ever.

Serena defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2. Serena jumped out to a quick first set drubbing of Radwanska but had a tough time in the second set as her opponent bounced back. Aided by her experience and her serve (15 aces in this match alone), Williams ensured that she would win the the singles title.

Williams has battled illness in the last 2years. She wasn't sure she would return to tennis. Not only did this tennis great return, she made a a huge splash on the grass at Wimbledon, serving an incredible 100 aces during the Wimbledon Championship.

I've always been a fan of the Williams sisters. They are great athletes and champions. Today, Serena also tied her sister and Martina Navratalova for having the most Wimbledon singles titles in the open era.

I view Serena as not only a great women's tennis player but a one of the greatest tennis players of all time. Serena has won 14 open singles titles. She has such passion for her sport and wears her emotions on her sleeve.

Serena was a joy to watch on Saturday, displaying class, determination, grit and all around skill on the court. Serena has 100 aces during the tournament. Can you believe that? That's just pure domination.

It 's almost impossible to beat a tennis player when they serve 15 aces per match. Her opponents found that out the hard way. Serena was in a  tough bracket but battled though it and showed the tennis world why she's still one of the greatesd tennis players of our time.

While Serena may be copying her bigger sister Venus Williams, she is leaving her own mark on the sport. 5 Wimbledon singles titles isn't too shabby. It's an incredible achievement.
