WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Saturday's women's final at Wimbledon
will be a family affair. Venus and Serena Williams will play for
the ladies title at the All England Club for a third time. Serena
won both previous meetings in 2002 and '03. It will be their seventh Grand Slam championship matchup.

Four-time Wimbledon winner Venus was first to advance. The seventh seed earned her seventh trip to the finale at the All England Club with a 6-1, 7-6 victory over fifth seed Elena Dementieva. Two-time champion Serena followed with a 6-2, 7-6 triumph over China's Zheng Jie.
