A fierce rivalry intertwined with plenty of sibling love. This pair of sisters has laced their trophy cabinet with trophies, while entertaining the world with tennis for the past two decades. Venus has claimed 49 singles titles, with seven being Grand Slams, while Serena has won 70 singles titles including 21 Grand Slams, making this one of the greatest on-court rivalries. Together, they have also achieved doubles success by claiming three Olympics Gold medals and 12 Grand Slams together. Despite their immense rivalry on court, both remain very close off the court with Serena summing it up: “Tennis is just a game; family is forever.”

"We are best friends, we are so close. We have always been together -- participating, living and traveling together -- so it is nice to have my sister on tour,” said Urszula Radwanska in an interview with CNN’s Open Court. This is one form of sisterly love that never fails to tug at our heartstrings. Coached by their father for the early part of their careers, the Radwanskas proceeded to put the Polish flag on the tennis map with scintillating performances on the court with the older Radwanska claiming 18 WTA singles titles and Urszula reaching a career high ranking of #29.
