There’s nothing like winning, and then there’s nothing like beating your older sister. Serena Williams, the WTA No. 1 player in the world, ousted No. 16 Venus Williams in straight sets (6-4, 6-3) at Wimbledon. The win by Serena moves her to 15-11 all time against Venus, who is a little more than a year older. The match seemed inevitable, as both tennis greats were high favorites in their previous three rounds of play.

Widely regarded as two of the greatest all time tennis stars, they have both ascended to fame against plenty of backlash. As dominant as they are in singles, when paired up for doubles, they are virtually unstoppable. However, they decided to withdraw from doubles in Wimbledon in order to focus on their singles. Serena will take on No. 23 Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals, where she expects to be the favorite again.
