Photos From 2009 Wimbledon Men's and Women's Finals

Wimbledon Finals

Always exciting, the Wimbledon championship matches seemed liked history repeating itself, but with the opposite outcomes. The Williams sisters battled it in the finals again this year, but with Serena coming out on top beating her older sister. This was Serena's third time winning Wimbledon, and by beating her sister she stopped Venus from winning the title for three years in a row. The sisters put any sibling rivalry behind them and ripped it up in the women's doubles finals, winning the title for the fourth time.

Check out some pics from the finals and read about the men's final.

It was another long match on center court, but this year Roger Federer faced American Andy Roddick. Similar to last year's final, it was a long five set match, but still a half an hour shy of Federer's four hour 48 minute marathon battle last year against Nadal, who ultimately won the championship. History rewrote itself, for this year Federer won the championship match, collecting his sixth Wimbledon victory and his 15th grand slam title. Roddick put up a good fight and I hope to see him center more in upcoming finals.

I love watching tennis and always get fired up to play after sitting on my couch, tense, watching the games. If you're excited to hit the courts, don't forget to warm up!
