Wimbledon Approaches Its Zenith

Both finals are set, and both are packed with drama and anticipation. On the women's side, it's gonna be Williams vs Williams for the title tomorrow morning. They've met many times before in Grand Slam finals, six to be exact, and the only question before each match is will both women play their best tennis. I'm not implying they hold back when they play each other, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to compete against a sibling for such an important championship. It's always nice when the championship provides a fitting crown to a tournament packed full of incredible tennis, so I'm ready for a serious slugfest between the two most talented female tennis players in the world.
The men's side features a matchup that is more highly anticipated than any tennis matchup since the Borg-McEnroe battles 20+ years ago. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will do battle Sunday morning for the championship after both cruised through their semifinal match.
I like to think I have a good sense of history, and Sunday morning will be history unfolding before our very eyes. This summer of tennis will have books written about it as these two titans set a new standard for the game.
I'm looking forward to the competition, the skill, the energy, the moment. There is so much at stake for these two superstars and we as fans get to sit back and soak it up.
