Australian Open 2017: Venus & Serena Williams to meet in ninth Grand Slam final

Venus and Serena Williams will meet in a Grand Slam final for the ninth time after the American sisters came through their semi-finals in Melbourne.



Thirteenth seed Venus, 36, beat fellow American Coco Vandeweghe 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 6-3 to reach her first major final since 2009.

World number two Serena, 35, saw off unseeded Croat Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-2 6-1 in the second semi-final.

Serena is attempting to win an Open-era record 23rd Grand Slam singles title.

It would also be a seventh Australian Open victory for the younger Williams sister, while Venus hopes to win an eighth major title, first in Melbourne and first since Wimbledon in 2008.

Saturday will be their first Grand Slam final against each other since Wimbledon 2009 when Serena won in straight sets.

Like I was so expecting this! I'm a fan of both, but I am now confused on who to really give my 100% support.

I would really like Ebony Venus Williams to take this championship, so she can retire, but I also want Serena Williams to break her 23 slam titles.

I wish them both luck, i'm standing on the fence on this.

Can't wait for tomorrow.
Graceful Venus and Energetic Serena, both professionals but I see Venus taking the prize money. Doggedness is a virtue too isn't it?

My 2 girls are ready with their bandanas and wristbands to support and bet. It is my duty to laugh. One Venus. One Serena. Kikiki.
Who wins?
