WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- There will be no all-Williams final at Wimbledon this year. Defending champion Serena has a good chance of playing for her fourth title on Saturday, but big sister and five-time winner Venus will be a spectator this time. Venus was ousted in the quarterfinals Tuesday, losing 6-2, 6-3 to 82nd-ranked Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria. Venus, seeded second, had reached the Wimbledon final in eight of the past 10 years. This time, she was undone by a slew of unforced errors and double-faults in her worst loss at Wimbledon in terms of games won -- five.
