Our favorite sports sisters faced off once again in the 2015 Wimbledon tournament earlier today as Serena Williams defeated her older sister Venus in the quarterfinals. In their 26th career meeting, Serena’s steady serve and hard hitting was too much for Venus as she won the match in a 6-4 and 6-3 victory. This win extends Serena’s Grand Slam winning streak to an incredible 25 matches.
With Madison Keys and Coco Vandeweghe also making the quarterfinals, it’s the 1st time since 2004 that three American women players advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Following her victory, here’s what Serena had to say:
“It’s hard to feel excited about (beating) someone you root for all the time no matter what and who you love so much and she’s your best friend in the world,” Serena said. “It’s never easy but you just play for the competition and enjoy the moment.”
Until the next time Serena and Venus face off, we owe a congratulations to the younger sister and wish her the best of luck in the quarterfinals of the 2015 Wimbledon tournament.
