It’s Serena Williams vs Venus Williams in the US Open Quarterfinal

Yesterday at the US Open Serena Williams defeated Madison Keys 6-3, 6-3 and Venus Williams defeated Anett Kontaveit, 6-2, 6-1.  The Williams sisters will meet in the quarterfinals tomorrow evening and the match will be telecast on ESPN at 7:00pm EST.

This is difficult for me.  I’ve been a long time fan of the Williams sisters.  I always root for both.  But I gotta go for Serena since she’s pursuing the calendar year Grand Slam.  At least we know there will be a Williams sister in the US Open semifinal.

At age 35, Venus Williams has been making a gallant effort to win an eighth major tennis title, her last one coming seven years ago at Wimbledon. But if she is to do it at this year’s United States Open, it will come at a heavy cost. She will have to deny her younger sister the rare opportunity to win a Grand Slam.

Williams dispatched Anett Kontaveit, 6-2, 6-1, and will play Serena Williams, the No. 1 seed on a path toward history, in the quarterfinals of the Open on Tuesday night.

That familial matchup was confirmed when Serena Williams followed her older sister on court at Arthur Ashe Stadium and pummeled Madison Keys, 6-3, 6-3.

Both women played clean, dominating tennis on Sunday, and so for the 27th time as professionals — not including other instances in practices and informal hitting sessions — they will put their unique and sometimes uneasy sibling relationship on public display.

“I’m playing, for me, the best player in the tournament,” Williams said.

That was Serena Williams, not Venus, speaking.

Oh and I just had to add this move that took place during Serena’s win against Bethanie Mattek-Sands last Friday.
