Venus Williams Makes It to Sony Ericsson Open Finals for First Time Since 2001
Third-seeded Venus today extended her 16-match winning streak by trouncing Marion Bartoli 6-3 6-4. It will be the elder Williams sister's first time in the finals since 2001, when she won.
She'll take on the winner of the all-Belgian matchup between Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters. Clijsters last played in and won the tournament in 2005. Henin lost in the 2007 finals against Serena.
Venus is a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins, and it sure would be nice to see someone associated with that team take home a championship in Miami.
