Williams Sisters to Meet at Grand Slam Final

Venus and Serena Williams will meet in a Grand Slam final for the ninth time after the American sisters came through their semi-finals in Melbourne. It would also be a seventh Australian Open victory for the younger Williams sister, while Venus hopes to win an eighth major title, first in Melbourne and first since Wimbledon in 2008. Saturday will be their first Grand Slam final against each other since Wimbledon 2009 when Serena won in straight sets.

 

"It is unbelievable to watch Serena play tennis - the way she hits the ball and the competitor she is. It would be a dream to see her on the opposite side of the net on Saturday." Venus Williams said after the first semi-final.

 

Speaking after her win, Serena said: "I am really proud of Venus - she is a total inspiration. I am really happy for her and to be in the final together is a dream for us. She is my toughest opponent, no-one has ever beaten me as much as Venus. I feel no matter what that we have both won after all we have been through. I know a Williams is going to win this tournament."

 

Venus Williams won the last of her seven Grand Slam titles in 2008 at Wimbledon.
