Monday at Wimbledon 2015 marks the 25th rendition of Serena vs. Venus, where more than just a Wimbledon quarterfinal is on the line.
By now the stakes for Serena at Wimbledon have been widely discussed—and for the record, she would really prefer everyone stop talking about her chase at history. Serena has won the last three majors. She is riding a 24-match winning streak at the Slams. She currently holds 20 majors, just two short of Steffi Graf’s Open Era record. A five-time champion at Wimbledon, she is the favorite to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Saturday. If she does so she will be the reigning champion of all four majors for the second time in her career, the so-called “Serena Slam.” And she will be one more major away from completing the Grand Slam—she would be the first player since Graf in 1988—which she could do on home soil at the U.S. Open in September.
And standing in the way of all of that on Monday is her older sister, Venus.
