Venus Williams survived a fierce onslaught from Serena Williams to win her fifth Wimbledon singles title on Saturday, finally subduing her younger sister 7-5 6-4.
Venus fought back from a break down in both sets to trump her sister in high-quality contest on a windswept Centre Court.
A scooped backhand wide from Serena handed Venus victory following an absorbing battle lasting one hour and 51 minutes.
In her moment of triumph, a beaming Venus quickly ran to the net to offer her sibling a consolation embrace. source
