2009 Wimbledon Champion & Finalist – Serena & Venus Williams – Coming to Philadelphia!
King of Prussia, Pa. (July 4, 2009) – For the eighth time in ten years, the Wimbledon trophy belongs to one of the Williams Sisters… and they’re both coming to Freedoms Stadium at the King of Prussia Mall this July as part of the greatest lineup of tennis stars ever seen in Philadelphia!
Earlier today, Serena Williams won her third Wimbledon by defeating sister Venus 7-6 (3), 6-2. This Independence Day all-American final was their 21st head-to-head confrontation. Serena now takes the lead in their rivalry 11-10.
Venus, who was trying to become the first woman since Steffi Graf (1991-93) to win three Wimbledon titles in a row, will be playing for the Freedoms this Wednesday, July 8 against the Sacramento Capitals.
Serena, who now owns eleven career Grand Slam singles titles, will be playing against the Freedoms for the visiting Washington Kastles on Monday, July 13.
