2011 Williams Watch-Little Sis Wins In Straight Sets

Watching the Williams sisters at times during this 125th edition of 'Williams'-don reminds me of the 'anything you can do I can do better' song.

After Big Sis took 62 minutes to dispatch her opponent in straight sets, it took Serena 89 minutes to do the same to Russia's Maria Kirilenko, the tournament's 26th seed.   Little Sis won in straight sets 6-3, 6-2 to move on to the fourth round and even uncorked one serve that was clocked at 113 mph while doing so.

If there were any question that Serena was having any lingering issues over the health issues she experienced over the last year, any doubts are quickly being silenced for both her and her elder sibling.

Serena's fourth round opponent as she kicks off her second week of tournament play will be with France's Marion Bartoli, the 9th seed who had a three set battle with Italy's Flavia Pennetta. 
The drive for her third consecutive Wimbledon Ladies Singles title is still alive, and it's looking like once again with a few breaks, she might have to fight her big sister for it.
