*Tennis: Rain disrupted today's Women's Semi-Final at the Wimbledon Championships. Play didn't start until after 5pm when it should have began at 1pm. Despite the delay fans were treated with 2 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 Amelie 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.
