"Sibling rivalry is a concept with which many of us are all too familiar. Sibling harmony is harder to fathom and, for some in the tennis world, difficult to accept. Venus and Serena Williams faced each other last week at Wimbledon, the third time they have met in a Grand-Slam final this year. The formidable sister act has some rivals griping that their matches are not competitive enough. 'The way they play in other matches—they really don't play that way against each other,' says Jennifer Capriati. But the two did not seem to be holding back when Serena beat Venus and nabbed her first Wimbledon singles trophy to display along with Venus's two. Venus's good grace at losing suggests that things will be just as harmonious at the U.S. Open."
