Venus and Serena win Wimbledon doubles title

From Yahoo sports:


Two titles, one day.

Nine hours after she stepped foot on Centre Court to win her fifth Wimbledon singles crown, Serena Williams teamed with her sister Venus to win their fifth Wimbledon doubles title. The sisters defeated Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, 7-5, 6-4 in an indoor match that ended just before Centre Court's 11 p.m. curfew.

The victory came in Venus and Serena's first tournament together in two years. They entered as a warm-up for the upcoming Summer Olympics, in which they'll enter as two-time defending gold medalists.
It was the sister's 14th Grand Slam doubles title, the third most in history. In each of their five championships at Wimbledon, one of them also hoisted the Venus Rosewater Dish in the singles competition, as Serena did on Saturday afternoon.

"[The day was] very long," Serena said after the match. "I was just happy to do it with singles and continue it with doubles."
After Serena set the Wimbledon record for most tournament aces, it was fitting that her sister ended their doubles match on an ace.
"I felt like it was my second match too," Venus joked afterward, referring to the tense moments she spent watching Serena defeat Agnieszka Radwanka in the single final.

I can see the bias and hatred on this board rising with each Williams victory!

Re: Venus and Serena win Wimbledon doubles title

This was a great victory. I enjoyed the play on court. I can honestly can say I thought today as yesterday, would be difficult for them to win. Venus stepped up her play. And Serena's energy level seemed much higher than in the singles or at least on par with the 3rd set.

I am so happy for them. They definitely silenced a lot of people. They are the 3rd winningest Grand Slam Doubles team. And they are only 1 behind the 2nd best.

I didn't see Venus' singles match but she was in doubles. She's lost quite a bit of weight as well since changing her diet.

She had a really bad day. She was playing at fractions of what she showed earlier this year.

At least in doubles she has someone to lean on if she's having a tough day.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
