Wimbledon, tennis capital of the world, may never see anything like it again: the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, fighting it out in Centre Court for the women’s singles championship in July 2008. When they had met here before in 2002 and 2003, Serena beat her older sister both times, but not that day as Venus showed once again that Wimbledon was her favorite court. Venus returned to defend her championship, glowing with a confidence that she might not have elsewhere. When she plays on grass, at 6’1” tall, she covers a lot of air and space at the net.
