Serena adds another Grand Slam to her resume

Serena Williams needed just 67 minutes to defeat Russian Vera Zvonareva and capture her fourth Wimbledon title. It’s also the ninth time in 11 years that a Williams sister has won the tournament, the other being Venus, obviously. With her 6-3, 6-2 victory on Saturday, Serena is now 13-3 in Grand Slam finals.


“I’m just glad that I was able to win, especially (after) Venus lost,” Serena said. “I really wanted a Williams sister to go ahead and win it. Eleven years consistent is really cool.”

That’s something the sisters won’t be able to ignore back home in Florida.

“Now everywhere we look there’s another Wimbledon trophy,” Williams said. Then she rolled her eyes and adding with a smile, “Not another one of those again.”

While Venus may be on her way to retirement, sister Serena is in full force. I mean, the woman didn’t lose a set the entire tournament.

What’s funny is that with 13 Slams to her name, Serena is still only sixth on the all-time list. That just exemplifies the dominance of the women ahead of her.

Still, though, it’s clear Serena is the premier player in women’s tennis. After making a dent in their comebacks, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin have lost a bit of their momentum. And what happened to Jelena Jankovic, Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic? Serena just keeps winning.

U.S. Open Update: Everything taking its course

The third round of the 2009 U.S. Open has nearly finished amidst the surprisingly welcoming weather at New York’s National Tennis Center. So far, there haven’t been many surprises. The top 16-ranked men all advanced rather seamlessly. Serena and Venus have had an easy time as well. Unfortunately, they are in the same draw and will likely meet in the semis. The other top female players are, as always, playing below their rank, as upsets and narrow victories are happening left and right.

This has been a topsy-turvy U.S. Open for the women: No. 8 Victoria Azarenka’s 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 loss to No. 26 Francesca Schiavone on Friday came a day after No. 4 Elena Dementieva and No. 5 Jelena Jankovic were upset. All told, 11 of the 20 highest-seeded women are gone, and the third round is only halfway done.

No. 1 Dinara Safina made it to Saturday’s third round, but barely. She needed more than 4 1/2 hours to get through two three-set victories.

The best men have faced no such problems: No. 3 Rafael Nadal’s 6-0, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory Friday night in the last match of Day 5 means the men seeded 1-16 all reached the third round at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in the 41-year Open era.

Once again, the lovely Ana Ivanovic failed to perform well in a Grand Slam, losing to Kateryna Bondarenko in the first round. Maria Sharapova, however, has advanced to third round and is currently in the third set against American Melanie Oudin. It would be great to see the former No. 1-ranked star face Serena or Venus in the finals.
