Tomorrow the amazing William sisters - Serena and Venus will face-off against one another in the Wimbledon Finals - Again! This will be the fourth year in a row that audiences will be cheering for and against, a member of the same family.

And that is not all - Since 2000, the title has left the Williams family just twice, in 2004 and 2006.

Not bad for two girls who started their tennis careers in a Los Angeles public court, coached by their father Richard Williams.

Mr. Williams who also home schooled his five girls, thought that introducing a sport would help them in get ahead in life and hoped that at least one of his daughters would become a good tennis player. Not even in his wildest dreams had he envisioned two star players of this caliber.

Besides being ace tennis players, the two are also very business savvy. Serena not only has a special line of clothing with Puma and Nike, but also her own line of designer apparel called 'Aneres' (Serena spelled backward) and recently, also launched her own collection of handbags and jewelry.

Elder sister Venus, who was recently named 77th most powerful celebrity by Forbes Magazine, is equally entrepreneurial. She owns an interior design firm 'V Starr Interiors', and recently launched her own line of clothing called 'EleVen'.

While the sisters are great friends, they are fierce rivals too, and both have a lot at stake in tomorrow's match. If Venus wins, it will be her sixth Wimbledon trophy and third consecutive one - therefore much coveted. For Serena, it will be the third Wimbledon win and a chance to catch up to her elder sister's five wins. No matter who wins, in our view, they are both champions!
