Wimbledon tennis fever on TV today
Yesterday was Williams day at Wimbledon. Serena Williams won the ladies singles title — her fifth Wimbledon. She defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2. Hours later, she teamed with her sister Venus — who also has five Wimbledon singles titles — to win their fifth Wimbledon ladies doubles title against Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, 7-5, 6-4. The victories are very sweet for these sisters. In 2010, Serena Williams thought she would never play again. She had suffered a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Venus has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder.
