Serena Williams vs Venus Williams on Centre Court

Serena and Venus Williams will meet tomorrow (Monday July 6, 2015) in the 4th round of Wimbledon on Centre Court.  The match starts at 8:00am Eastern Time.

(CNN) For Serena it’s a vital match in her quest for the grand slam while for Venus it’s maybe her last chance to win Wimbledon.

But for both the Williams, Monday’s sisterly showdown on Centre Court is a match neither is truly relishing.

Serena’s coach Patrick Mouratoglou told CNN that the world number one would indeed rather she be facing another opponent.

“They’re super close so this is not something she likes,” the Frenchman revealed.

“Plus Venus is a super player. She’s been No.1. She’s won many grand slams and she’s super dangerous on grass. But I guess if you want to win a grand slam you have to beat the best players and Venus is one of those. So she will have to beat her if she wants to win here.”

Thanks goodness I’m off tomorrow so I can watch this match.  But it’s gonna be bittersweet because I like both Serena and Venus.  The last time they met at Wimbledon was in 2009 when Serena defeated Venus in the Ladies Final.

While Serena has been on a Grand Slam winning streak, Venus has been recovering from an auto-immune disease Sjogren’s syndrome which was diagnosed in 2011.  Serena almost didn’t make this round after squeaking past British tennis player Heather Watson last Friday.  That was a thriller.

Good luck to both ladies.
