Serena and Venus Williams win Men's Doubles Final at Wimbledon
WIMBLEDON -- Venus and Serena Williams have made tennis history once again - this time by defeating long-ago tennis star John McEnroe and all-time great Roger Federer at Wimbledon's Men's Doubles final.
The Williams sisters' victory marks their 15th Doubles Grand Slam Championship, their 4,372nd appearance at a Grand Slam final, and the 2 millionth instance of their general ass-kicking.
Accustomed to making history at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club, the sisters thought they would make this year's Wimbledon tournament "more interesting" by competing on the gentlemen’s side of the draw, where they dismissed some the sport’s best male players on grass courts with relative ease.
In the final against McEnroe and Federer, the Williams sisters quickly established their dominance, winning the first two sets (6-2, 6-1) before Venus broke Federer's 158 mph serve in the opening game of the third set. Before the match could conclude, Serena Williams returned Federer's a cross-court backhand so hard that the ball nailed a helpless McEnroe - who was playing net - squarely in the face. After a long medical timeout during which McEnroe's face bled profusely, the men threw in the towel, forfeiting the championship to their undisputed superiors, the Williams Sisters.
Federer was gracious in defeat, calling the Williams sisters, "the best players of all time."
McEnroe was less magnanimous, accusing Serena of using "witchcraft to cheat" while squeezing his broken nose.
Serena shrugged off his insult, saying, "Bitch, I beat you pregnant. Imagine what I'll do to you once I get these twins out of me." Then she threw her arms around Venus and laughed.
Ronda Rousey, the retired female MMA fighter, took to Twitter to praise the sisters. Noting that Serena's backhand sealed the match, Rousey wrote, "some guys only wish they could hit like a girl.”
