Serena and Venus Williams exemplify true greatness in the sport of tennis. Some say their best years as a formidable tandem—who have each, individually, carved out very separate careers—are behind them.
Both are former No. 1s in their profession, historically having wowed pundits and audiences across the globe.
However, Serena has been pushed back to No. 12 in the rankings, and her sister Venus has slipped all the way to No. 101.
Granted, they both cannot occupy the top spot simultaneously, but auspicious reasons augur a final run atop the tennis mountain for the greatest sister duo in history.
2012 will be eerily reminiscent of the last decade that saw Venus and Serena take turns winning titles.
