Venus Williams has won Wimbledon five times, while her sister Serena, who is the defending champion, has won it three times.
By Jason LewisSentinel Sports Editor
It is only fitting that the Williams sisters are the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. Â Since 2000 the two of them have won eight of the singles titles, and one of them have appeared in each championship match all but once over that time period.
Older sister Venus, who is seeded No. 2 this year, has won the tournament five times, while Serena has won it three times.
The past two years has seen a Venus vs. Serena finals match up, with Venus winning in 2008 and Serena winning last year.
The dominance does not stop at singles titles. Â The ladies have won the doubles title four times since 2000, and have won it the last two years. Â Each time the two have played in the Wimbledon doubles finals they have won in straight sets.
There is no question that these two women have been better than any other women in tennis over the past two years. Â They have simply dominated the field, and when it looked like they had fallen off a couple years ago, they both proved their doubters wrong by winning multiple Grand Slam titles.
If you want to watch the sisters play live you will have to wake up pretty early in the morning. Â These two women are worth the early rise.
