It’s said in astrological textbooks that the dual signs – Gemini, Libra, Pisces – like sports that take two – tennis, dancing and so on. Well, one of the Williams is a Gemini and one is a Libra. I won’t tell you who yet because I thought I’d let you guess which chart belongs to which sister. Here’s a clue – both sisters had injuries this year but Serena had horrendous complications.

Answer tomorrow.
