Wimbledon 2010 The Women's Final

by Savannah


It'll be World Number One Serena Williams playing Vera Zvonareva for the Wimbledon Women's Championship on Saturday July 3.
Serena was taken to a first set tiebreaker by Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic but ran away with the second set in her 7-6(5), 6-2 win.
Bepa needed half of a set to figure out how to beat Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova winning 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 neutralizing Pironkova's powerful game in the process.

More on Pironkova and Kvitova in the Wimbledon Look Back early next week.

Congratulations to both finalists.

apparently after williams sisters lost their doubles match they refused presse conference. i heard this morning that they have been charged

They didn't refuse. Serena said that usually after a doubles match there is no formal presser. She went on to say that if there are requests from the media for statements of some kind someone from the tournament will ask them and they're later released to the press.

I can't recall ever seeing or hearing about a press conference after doubles of any kind. But yes they were fined $2,000 dollars.

Kind of like that fine for coaching no?
