Get ready for some fireworks

Serena Williams won to advance to the finals at Wimbledon, making for another "Sister Act." I'm picking Williams to win in straights! (Venus, that is.)

Tomorrow, the men are on tap: I'm still sticking with my original prediction of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to make it through. But I'll say this, and I hope it doesn't sound too crazy: If Marat Safin won tomorrow, I wouldn't be surprised at all.

My blogging is going to be extremely limited over the next couple of days for the Fourth of July weekend. So if you happen to observe it, have a safe and happy 4th! And if you don't, have a safe and happy weekend!

The Fourth is no excuse to leave us high and dry, Van! Have a great holiday. We'll see about Venus. Serena's looking sharp, too ...

I'm really excited to watch these two play. No matter who wins, I'm happy - as long as the match is good (which I think it will be!)

That said - Go VENUS!!!!

Have a great 4th, and short break, I'm sure you've earned it.

And I'm with you, I want Venus to fivepeat!

Happy 4th to you!

I guess most of us know that Venus is a great player on grass court.

Can't wait for the men's singles tonight! My bet on Nadal!
