Sony Ericsson WTA Tour | News | Latest News | Serena-Maria, Kim-Justine Loom At SW19.

Wimbledon starts tomorrow!  Majority of the grand slams in the past few years have been shared by these four people.  All have been contenders for the title before save for Kim.  The Williamses have dominated this slam since the start of the decade except in 2004 when Serena lost to Sharapova and in 2006 when not one of the sisters made it to the finals.

Some trivia:

In the last 10 years (2000-2009), Venus has been in the finals 8 times and won the title 5 times (62.5%).  Serena has been in the finals 5 times and won it 3 times (60%).  Justine has been in the finals twice but unlucky both times.  Sharapova has won the title on her debut but never appeared in the finals since.

It will be an exciting two weeks of late nights once again just to catch the matches but it’ll always be worth it.  Will it still be the Williams or will a new name be carved in the Wimbledon trophy?
