Wimbledon Tennis Finals Set
After two wicked weeks of tennis on both the men’s and women’s sides, the finals at Wimbledon are set.
In the men’s final American Andy Roddick will face Swiss powerhouse Roger Federer, arguably the best tennis player of all time. Federer finds himself with the opportunity to break the record for Grand Slam Championships should he knock off Roddick to take his 15th Grand Slam title.
“Look, I’m very proud of all the records I’ve achieved, because I never thought I’d be that successful as a kid,” Federer said after his Wimbledon semi-final win. “So many things are going well for me again and an opportunity again on Sunday, it’s fantastic.”
Federer and Roddick have played each other 20 times, with Federer winning 18 of those tennis matches.
On the women’s side of Wimbledon it’s once again an all-sister final with Venus and Serena Williams set to battle it out at center court for the Wimbledon crown. The two faced each other in the final last year with Venus downing her sister in straight sets 7-5, 6-4.
“The more we play, the better it gets,” said Serena, the youngest of the two sisters at 27. “This is what we dreamt of when we were [kids] growing up. I wanted her to win and she wanted me to win. It all comes down to this.”
The Williams sisters have also played each other 20 times as professional tennis players. However, unlike Roddick and Federer, they’re all tied up with 10 wins each.
