The Williams Sisters, Venus and Serena, met on center court at Wimbeldon for the fourth time.  In an exciting game of tennis, Serena beat her sister in straight sets in a relatively short match, 7-6 (3) and 6-2.

“She had an answer for everything,” Venus said during the trophy presentation. “She played the best tennis today, so congratulations.”
