2011 Williams Watch-'Williams'-don Gets Started

Break out the strawberries and cream people because the 2011 edition of 'Williams'-don, AKA The Championships got underway across The Pond today.

I'm happy because my favorite tennis playing siblings are there in full effect at their fave Grand Slam event.  

How much of an effect and whether one of them will be taking home another Venus (Williams) Rosewater Dish we'll find out in two weeks.

Nope, they aren't playing Ladies Doubles in this 2011 edition of Wimbledon to the relief of the doubles field...

Serena was seeded at No. 7 and has yet to play her opening round match with France's Aravane Rezai.  Big Sis was seeded No. 23 and thankfully ended up on the opposite side of the Ladies Singles draw from Little Sis.   If they handle their tennis playing business, there's a possibility of another Sister-Sister act in the Wimbledon finals.

Speanking of handling tennis playing business, Venus has already played her opening round match with Uzbekistan's Akgul Amanmuradova and beat her in straight sets 6-3, 6-1.  Venus' second round opponent will be Japan's Kimiko Date-Krumm

Good luck ladies, and may you both have a long and successful run in this tournament.
