The casual tennis fan might be disappointed that Saturday’s women’s singles final at Wimbledon doesn’t feature sisters Serena and Venus Williams.
But the more discerning observers know that the better matchup prevailed: Serena Williams versus Angelique Kerber of Germany.
Theirs is a rematch of this year’s Australian Open final, which Kerber won in an upset, and pits the players who will be No. 1 (Williams) and No. 2 (Kerber) when the new rankings come out next week.
Despite the left-handed Kerber winning their last meeting, the right-handed Williams is the favorite, and has won six Wimbledon singles titles.
