Venus, Serena Williams To Meet In All-Williams Australian Open Final

Serena Williams will meet sister Venus in the Australian Open final on Sunday after both blasted their way into the Melbourne showpiece.

2003: The only time Venus and Serena pulled off such a feat in Australia, with Serena winning the title 7-6 (7-4), 3-6, 6-4.

Seeing Serena overpower Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in straight sets in a 50-minute semifinal victory came as no surprise. "I'm very proud of myself". "Even though it was Serena, I'm still a competitor".

"I cried because I'm generally quite an emotional person".

If you're wondering, in popular culture then, Norah Jones won Song of the Year for Don't Know Why at the Grammys that year.

The world number 35 broke Williams in the opening game of the match but double-faulted on break point.

"I try to believe", she said.

"I think it was probably one of the best experiences of my life".

"Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more?" she asked.

Pavlyuchenkova, playing her fourth major quarter-final, let her chances slip in a match with few extended rallies on Rod Laver Arena. I was there when she first started. As an outsider with brown skin who wore beads in her hair, she shattered tennis's traditional mold. That year, she also faced her sister.

The sisters' most recent match beyond their upcoming one, was two years back in New York City. Konta's nine-match and 18-set winning streak made her the player to stop Williams from clinching her seventh title.

After a dramatic run through to the semi-finals, Lucic-Baroni left Melbourne with one special memento. Honestly, I play a power game as well.

Roger Federer will attempt to reach his first Grand Slam final since 2015 at the Australian Open on Thursday, while Serena and Venus Williams are both gunning for the women's title match.

The most prestigious siblings in tennis show no sign of fading, this the first time in the Open era that two players aged 35 or older have reached the last four at the same grand slam. Williams is also playing the Australian Open for the 17th time, a record she shares with her sister, Serena. So I feel like I had to be on it all around today. "I'm so happy to be in a position to go further". "So that was not easy for me".

"I didn't realise she was so tall, to be honest".

Her mother Tauna swam for the the 1976 Olympics, while grandfather Ernie and uncle Kiki played in the National Basketball Association, and Vandeweghe had said earlier that no-one gave each other any latitude when it came to intra-family sporting contests. But I think she's taller than me.

All of the players have recently had injuries. "So it was a good opportunity to go out there".
