30 June 2005[edit]

  • Tennis: Rain disrupted today's Women's Semi-Final at the Wimbledon Championships. Play didn't start until after 5pm when it should have begun at 1 pm. Despite the delay fans were treated with two superb matches. In a shockingly powerful performance Venus Williams (seeded 14th) beat the reigning champion Maria Sharapova in straight sets, 7–6 (7–2) 6–1. The win was highly unexpected but the match was considered some of the best Tennis from the ladies all season. In Court 1 Lindsay Davenport faced Amélie Mauresmo in an equally highly entertaining match. In the middle of the 3rd set it began to rain and so the match was left at 7–6 6–7 5–3 to Davenport.
