Wimbledon has reached its higher stages in what was a long grueling race against bad weather, surreal encounters, and amazing displays of Tennis. In the women`s singles, the contest is almost done with only two more rounds to play. In the semifinals of the tournament, there are 3 top 10 players and one unseeded player. But, what catches the attention is a particular name like Williams. Both American players and sisters, Serena and Venus are going to fight for a place in the singles final tomorrow.

And these athletes are on the verge of playing against each other in the final. It will be such an outstanding match, with two of the oldest females competingon the WTA circuit fighting for onelast drop of glory. In order to acknowledge their statuses, it requires a simple math effort, namely to make a simple addition - their combined age exceeds 70 with Venus, 36, being the older sister, while Serena is almost 35-years-old.

Wimbledon semifinals.

Both semifinals are going to start at the same hour which is common at this level. Venus Williams(8 WTA) will face Angelique Kerber (4 WTA) who managed to outshine Simona Halep (5 WTA) in what was a well-balanced quarter. The German won in two sets by 7-5 7-6. In the second semifinal, Serena will apparently have an easy task by playing against Elena Vesnina from Russia. Vesnina (50 WTA) is without any doubt the underdog of 2016 Wimbledon.

The Russian player got herself a ticket in the semis by surpassing Dominika Cibulkova in a strong manner 6-2 6-2. So, the Williams sisters are facing one more bump on their way to the final. While for Serenait might not be a surreal result, for Venus it is quite a performance. In the past years, she has struggled with some health issues that prevented her from competing at her best level. Last year, she made a powerfulcomeback in the ranking and now things looks just fine.

It would not be the first time.

If Williams sisters will make it to the final, it`ll be a replay of 2009 Wimbledon`s last act. In 2009 they played the Wimbledon final with Serena claiming the trophy. For Venus, Wimbledon remains her most successfultournament. The 36-year-old player won the women`s singles contest on 5 occasionsin 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008. Also, along with her sister Serena, she clinched 5 doubles title on the British grass in 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2012.

Moreover, after this Wimbledon, Williams sisters are going to make some last minute adjustments in order to compete as a team in Rio.
