A tennis match for the ages!
Serena Williams, 35, will face off against her older sister Venus, 36, in the final match of the Australian Open. While the Williams sisters have played each other in high stakes matches before, they both have something major to gain if they win. For Venus, a win at the Australian Open would give her a career Grand Slam while Venus could snag herself the No. 1 seed and a record 23 Open titles with the victory.
Only looking at Grand Slam (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open) appearances, Serena and Venus have played each other 15 times including their upcoming match on Saturday.
A family affair
Serena recently said: “She’s my toughest opponent, no-one has ever beaten me as much as Venus has. She has a pretty good record against me. “No matter what happens we’ve won, she’s been through a lot, I’ve been through a lot. To see her do so well it’s great so I look forward to it. A Williams is going to win this tournament.” While Venus said ” I would love nothing more than anything to see her across the net from me on Saturday.”
The women’s singles final is the first match of Saturday’s evening session at the Rod Laver Arena.
