    In Saturday's 2003 Wimbledon final, top-seeded Serena Williams of the US defeated her injured older sister, s4 # 4 Venus Williams 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 (photo shown). Venus was visibly suffering from an abdominal injury that also troubled her in the 1st set of the SFs; she also was limping and had a taped thigh. The match might not have gone three sets but for Serena's erratic play in the 1st set, where she had 14 of her 30 unforced errors for the match. Against this, Serena hit 31 winners for the day. Serena won 99 points, Venus, who was clearly injured and required an early 3rd-set break for medical treatment, won 93 (match statistics).

    Serena said: "...Venus played really well in the first set and her ground strokes were just really kicking. She was really putting me on the defense... I think I just maybe started out a bit slow. I was making a few too many errors. But at the same time, she was just running me back and forth and blasting winners when she saw an opportunity."

    Venus said: "...it's tough enough to go into the Wimbledon final because you know you have to play your best tennis to win. It's a little tougher also, not really sure how much you can do, how far - how much I could do, I wasn't sure how far I could go... If it wasn't the Wimbledon final, chances of me playing probably would have went down."

    Serena now leads the career series between the Williams sisters 7-5. More importantly, Serena has defeated Venus in all of their last 6 consecutive matches, including last year's Wimbledon final, 7-6(4), 6-3, and, most recently, this years Australian Open final, 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-4. Serena has won 23 of the 30 WTA singles finals she has played in (including 6 Grand Slams). Venus has won 29 of the 46 WTA singles finals in which she has played (including 4 Grand Slams). Venus is taller, slimmer, moves better on the court, and has been serving a little bit faster than Serena at Wimbledon this year. It looks like she should defeat Serena regularly, but it hasn't turned out that way since the 2001 US Open.

Averages of Match Average Serve Speeds: from the 1st round through the SFs
Venus:
1st serve: 105.17 mph
2nd serve: 85.17 mph
fastest: 118 mph
Serena:
1st serve: 101.67 mph
2nd serve: 83.33 mph
fastest: 120 mph
    The time in England is UCT (GMT, Zulu, Greenwich...) plus 1 hour (daylight savings). That is 8 hours ahead of PDT in the US, 5 hours ahead of EDT. Early round play begins at noon local (4am PDT, 7am EDT) except for play on Centre Court & Court 1, which begin at 1pm.

d#3 Ai Sugiyama & d#4 Kim Clijsters

    Sunday's doubles final was a rematch of the French Open doubles final, pitting top seeds Paola Suarez of Argentina and Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain (shown at the German Open earlier this year) against 2nd-seeds Belgian Kim Clijsters and her Japanese partner Ai Sugiyama (shown on Friday at Wimbledon). Kim and Ai narrowly defeated the top-rated team at Roland Garros 6-5(7), 6-2, 9-7.
    This time the result was the same, but it wasn't quite as close, as Kim and Ai defeated Paola and Virginia 6-4, 6-4. This was Kim's 2nd Grand Slam title (the French doubles was her 1st); Ai, in addition to this year's French doubles, had previously won the US Open title both in doubles (2000 w/Halard-Decugis) and mixed doubles (1999 w/Bhupathi).

    In the Mixed Doubles Final on Sunday, Martina Navratilova (teamed with Leander Paes of India) won an record-tying 20th career Wimbledon title by defeating Israel's Andy Ram and Anastassia Rodionova of Russia 6-3, 6-3. Billie Jean King is the only other player to have won 20 championships at the All England Club. Martina's Wimbledon titles: 9 singles, 7 doubles, and 4 mixed doubles. Martina 1st played at Wimbledon 30 years ago (reaching the 3rd round), and won her 1st Wimbledon singles title in 1978.
    Navratilova Trivia: Martina played Chris Evert 80 times, winning 43 (mostly the later matches) and losing 37 (mostly the earlier matches). Fully 60 of their 80 contests were in finals. Chrissie once won 8 straight against Martina; Martina once won 13 straight against Chrissie. They last played in Chicago (the tourney final, of course) on November 7, 1988, with Martina winning 6-2, 6-2.
