Venus defeats Serena for 5th Wimbledon Title
Serena lost the Wimbledon Final to a fiercely competitive and "on-point" Venus Williams, 7-6, 6-4. Serena's second serve percentage was extremely low compared to Venus whose serve (even the 2nd) was poppin' like popcorn! Serena failed to convert on quite a few breakpoint opportunities and was a little more error-prone in the 2nd set. Serena's ranking will rise from #6 to #5 (which I know she could possibly care less about at this very moment). Venus is truly something else on Center Court / grass at Wimbledon. Congratulations Venus! Serena should be more determined than ever to continue to tighten up her game. The head-to-head is now leveled, 8-8. Grand Slam Titles: Serena (8) and Venus (7). 5 Wimbledon titles....WOW!
