The one that Venus Williams is deservedly holding.
All this she did, as she quashed young (“My dad used to put up some targets, if I touched the targets, I get candy. So I was very motivated. Maybe that’s why I’m still loving too much the candies. But whatever.”) Marion Bartoli at Wimbledon last night.
In so doing, she also quashed the rankings system. Williams was seeded 23rd here at Wimbledon [and although Bartoli (who’d beaten Henin on the way to Saturday) said Venus was World no 1 on grass ] and was actually ranked 31st in the world. Sandwiched between -you know these names – Francesca Schiavone and Olga Poutchkova (zero career singles titles between them), and stuck behind women from 16 other countries, including 3 from Italy, which has never had anyone win Wimbledon.
But thats looking at it from the wrong end.
Yesterday, with her fourth Wimbledon title she joined Billie Jean, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf in a select band. Justice.
Meanwhile, Roger plays Rafa later this evening. What are you doing this Sunday?
