WIMBLEDON, England (July 3) – A spot in her seventh Wimbledon final already secured, Venus Williams headed back to Centre Court to catch the end of the next match.

Scouting? Not really. More like rooting. And when Thursday’s second semifinal ended, Williams stood, smiling and applauding for the woman who won, the woman she will have to beat to earn a fifth championship at the All England Club: her younger sister, Serena.

The most unusual and, at times, uncomfortable rivalry in tennis is once more in the spotlight at the pinnacle of the sport: Venus will play Serena in their third all-in-the-family Wimbledon final Saturday.

It’s their seventh Grand Slam title match – Serena holds a 5-1 edge over her sister – but first final at any tournament since 2003.

“Our main focus is obviously both of us getting to the final,” Venus said. “Then, from there, it’s every Williams for themself.”
