Venus Williams Embraces Tennis History with Her Stunning Victories and High Spirits at Wimbledon
To be sure, Williams's historic run at the All England Club was not all strawberries and cream. There was, for starters, the bittersweet experience of beating her younger sister Serena in the semifinals. Not that the Williams sisters are overly sentimental when it comes to facing each other. "In a big tournament both [of us] want to win and want to go all out," says Serena, 18, who won the U.S. Open women's singles title last year. "It may be my sister, but she is the opponent." Fittingly enough, the tournament ended on a note of family harmony as the Williamses captured the ladies' doubles crown July 10, 6-3, 6-2, while their father, Richard, 58, who left London after Venus's singles victory, and their mother, Oracene, 48, rooted for them back home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. "We worked hard to be the best," says Venus, "because for us, why play if we don't believe we can be the best." After their dazzling performance, that was one point they had certainly aced.
