The Wimbledon women's final may be one day away, but two things are already clear: An American will be the 2008 Ladies' Champion. And her last name will be Williams.
Venus and Serena Williams will come face-to-face over the net Saturday (weather permitting) for the final of the most prestigious tournament in tennis.
"She's a tough opponent," Serena said. "I think she'll be the toughest person I've played. I'm excited."
Added Venus: "It's every Williams for themself."

Tennis goes green for the next two weeks as Wimbledon starts on the lawn courts of London – and Venus Williams hopes she'll be able to claim her fifth women's title.
In fact, she says, last year's win gives her a slight mental edge.
"The advantage is that you won last year and it will never be taken away from you," Williams told reporters before the tournament began Monday. "It will always be yours, and you can hug the plate at night if it gets cold." (Venus's younger sister Serena has won the title twice. Together, they've also claimed the doubles title twice.)

Tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams are joining Nick & Jessica and Britney & Kevin in the reality TV business. The sisters are filming their lives for an upcoming ABC Family network show to air in July. "Nothing's really been off limits," Serena told us at the 10th Anniversary gala of the D.C. Recreation Wish List Committee, "(except) the bathroom, of course." We'll see the practical joker side of Serena, "who constantly turned on my (car) seat warmer in Florida," says Venus. And possibly Venus's angry side: "I said something about someone. I was really mad at the person, and I made a threat. I wish I hadn't said that, but maybe it will be cut on the editing room floor." Hope not.
