Venus and Serena Own Wimbledon

Having both won three of their matches and not dropping any sets to their opponents, both sisters have advanced to the fourth round of Wimbledon 2008.

With a 6-1, 7-5 score in her match against Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez on Saturday, Venus Williams displayed excellent movement and missile-like serves.

The four-time Wimbledon champion has set another record at age twenty-eight, delivering the fastest woman serve ever recorded at the pinnacle tennis tournament, 127 miles per hour, edging out her very own record from last year of 126 mph.

These sisters have come a long way from the bead wearing sisters who took the tennis world by storm. The showdown between the sisters is going to be an awesome event. I can't wait.

I love this photo! The Williams sisters are such amazing athletes. They live well-rounded lives and are still able to do amazing things in major tournaments seemingly effortlessly.

I love that Venus Williams set a new record for the fastest serve ever by a woman.

Thanks for sharing!
