Venus & Serena will play U.S. Open doubles
Venus Williams confirms that she and her sister Serena will play doubles at the U.S. Open. After not having played for a year, the Williams sisters won their 13th Grand Slam doubles title at Wimbledon and won their third doubles gold medal at the London Olympics.
"Doubles is is very important to me," Venus told reporters. "Those titles add to your Grand Slam count. It feels very good. It's nice to have a full day off, but when you're going for both [singles and doubles] titles, it takes a lot of focus, and I want both titles. They both mean a lot to me. I never, never, never throw in the towel if I've lost in singles no matter what. I have been rewarded a lot of times with those titles. For me, both are important."
Is this a good idea?
