[VIDEO] Australian Open Flashblack: Venus vs Serena – 2003 Ladies Final

The Australian Open is a little over a week away and I cannot wait. This 2003 match is arguably among the sisters’ most competitive matches against each other at a Grand Slam event. So much was riding on this one for both sisters; Serena’s opportunity to complete the ‘Serena Slam’ (4 consecutive finals) and Venus’ opportunity to turn around a losing streak to her sister in Grand Slam finals. Venus had not lost a set up until this point in the tournament and Serena looked like she was carrying the pressure of being the top player and winning the previous slams on her shoulder. Serena fought mightily to beat Emilie Loit in the first round and the semis against Kim Clijsters, overcoming match points in both to make it to the final against her sister. This is how the final unfolded.
