DAMN!! Seems like it was just 10 minutes ago I looked and it was 1-1 in the second set. Nice going V&S. I was worried after they got down the early break in the first set. Playing doubles is great and all as long as it doesn't affect their singles. No long drawn out doubles matches ladies. Good job.

Only lost 2 more games after being down 1-3 in the first set! Well done

Good win. I think this might be the end of Venus/Serena's run.

Venus' draw is open but at this point even if she makes the final and Serena makes the final, the fresher one will definitely be Serena.
If she wants the box set as much as she says she does, it's time to consider pulling out of doubles like at Wimbledon.

This was great preparation for the Olympics though.

Doubles is not taking that much out of them. I think they'll stay in it until they win or lose.

So long as Venus is healthy she'll
play. No question about it.

I don't think playing doubles takes that much out of them, considering all they do is serve and return hard. Plus doubles takes probably 60% or less energy than playing singles.

Really, don't even look at me...

Every win for Venus and Serena in singles and doubles has been in straight sets, so they should be good to go.
