Tennis star sisters Venus and Serena Williams have played tennis together forever, but they played against each other in a professional setting for the first time 17 years ago at the Australian Open in a game that was won by the elder sister. The two have played at eight Grand Slam finals, according to the Daily Mail.

Now, they are poised to meet again on Monday at Wimbledon as Serena vies for a chance to hold all four Grand Slam titles at one time for the second time in her career, the report notes.
