The Williams family entourage is normally a feature of Wimbledon but this year Serena has been supported only by sister Isha. Her father, Richard has stayed home following the birth of a son, Dillon, while the rest of the family, including Venus, have also remained Stateside. Serena is staying in the same house in Wimbledon where they have previously passed the fortnight and despite her big sister not being there, she is still sleeping in the smaller bedroom.
