Women's Singles - 4th round

WIMBLEDON, England WIMBLEDON womens final ended anticlimactically on Saturday, and Tony Adamson, announcer at All England Club, intone: Ladies and gentlemen. Runner-up. Venus Williams! Even for those who had watch forehands and two-hand backhands closely on this breezy afternoon, Adamson's words still had odd ring. WIMBLEDON has long been Williams sisters territory, but it was Venus, not Serena, who had the biggest stake in place. It was Venus who had won five singles titles, including the last two. It was Venus who had won 20 straight singles matches and, until Saturday, 34 straight sets. Despite few hints of regime change in the early rounds, this did not turn out to be her year. Instead, it was younger sister Serena's turn to keep WIMBLEDON inscribers busy. She broke Open this often-edgy final midway through the second set and then secured her third WIMBLEDON singles title by breaking Venuss serve in a tight final game to win, 7-6 6-2. Theres not easy to losing, especially when it is so close to the crown, Venus say. Crowns are reserved for genuine royalty in England, but the women's singles champions at WIMBLEDON are handed Venus Rosewater Dish, elegant plate that has a long look and, above all, sounds just right in Venuss possession. It name is Venus, and she always wins it, and it just like wow, Serena told the Centre Court crowd. It hasnt settled in that I won yet. She last won here in 2002 and 2003, beating Venus in both finals at a time when she dominated the women's game, holding, at one particularly acquisitive stage, all four Grand Slam singles titles. Serenas victory on Saturday, in which she finished with 12 aces and never lost her serve, was the latest confirmation that she is on another memorable run. At 27, she holds three of four majors: WIMBLEDON, Australian Open and United States Open. Difficult as it might be for tennis fans to fathom, she will remain a relatively distant No. 2 behind Dinara Safina when the latest rankings were issued on Monday. I see myself as No. 2; that's where I am, Serena say. I think Dinara did a great job to getting to No. 1. She won Rome and Madrid. She then laughs along with reporters present. In Safina's defense, Serena has saved her best for Grand Slam events. Her three Grand Slam victories were her only tournament victories last year. But Serena is player of her generation. Her 11 Grand Slam singles titles are not only best in her family Venus has seven but is just one behind former American Champion Billie Jean King, who stands sixth on the women's career list. King was in the Royal Box on Saturday. I 've never seen anyone express their willpower as much as Serena Williams on tennis court, ever, she said to the BBC.
