Last night, at the US Tennis Open it was a battle of will, strength and talent, the latest installment in the tennis battle between sisters Serena and Venus Williams. It was Serena, who held off her big sister to win in three sets and solidify her place in history as the greatest female tennis player of all time. However, Venus did give her little sister a run for her money. She challenged Serena from the onset, capitalizing on Serena’s uncharacteristic errors. After losing her serve twice in the first seven games to drop the first set, Venus came roaring back to win the second set.
Serena Williams is now only two victories away from completing her first career calendar Grand Slam, having won all three of the previous majors in 2015. No female player has achieved the feat since Steffi Graf in 1988.
