Wimbledon champion Venus crushes Safina

Defending champion Venus Williams ensured the Wimbledon final would be another family affair with a devastating performance against Russia’s Dinara Safina in Thursday’s second semifinal. Third seed Venus produced an awesome display on Centre Court, crushing world No.1 Safina 6-1 6-0 in just 51 minutes, after sister Serena had earlier won an epic three-set semifinal against Elena Dementieva. There was no way five-times champion Venus, was being sucked into such a dogfight.
