2008 Wimbledon Results: Venus Williams reaches final

2008 Wimbledon Results: Venus Williams reaches final Defending champion Venus Williams ensured a spot on the 2008 Wimbledon final, after beating Elena Dementieva 6-1, 7-6 (3) on Thursday. Heavy favorite with the odds makers at BodogSports (-350), Venus Williams had little trouble against fifth-seeded Dementieva to improve her record to 7-0 in semifinals at the All England Club. Following her semi-final victory, Venus Williams is now the favorite to win the 2008 Wimbledon with odds 5/4, followed by sister Serena at 11/10, who is facing Chinese wild-card entrant Zheng Jie. The suspense was extended today, after their match was suspended by rain with Serena leading 5-2.

 "I am dying for Serena to get through. This is my seventh final here and I'm looking forward to playing Serena in our third final, and I'm going to be rooting her on. At this point, our main focus is obviously both of us getting to the final. Then from there it's every Williams for themselves," Venus said after securing a shot at her seventh Grand Slam title. It would be the first all-Williams final since 2003 when Serena beat Venus in the championship match for the second year in a row.
