Today tennis fans around the world watched Serena Williams win the women's Wimbledon singles championship.  Later in the day dedicated fans saw Serena and her sister Venus win the Wimbledon doubles championship.  However, the most stunning Williams achievement that the tv audience heard about today was related to neither of these events. During the broadcast one of the announcers reported that the sisters' father, Richard Williams, was a newlywed and would soon, at 70, be a father again.

In Vegas, I'm guessing that Serena individually, and Serena and Venus in the doubles, would have been favorites.  I'm not sure they were taking odds on dad's chances.

Congratulations to the Williamses.
