Two-time Doubles champions Venus and Serena Williams have received a wild card into the Ladies' Doubles at Wimbledon after the British pairing of Amanda Elliott and Katie O'Brien were forced to withdraw due to injury

The Williams sisters won the doubles title together twice in 2000 and 2002 and between them have won Wimbledon five times. However, they have not played in a doubles match as a pair since they lost to Elena Dementieva and Lina Krasnoroutskaya in the third round of Wimbledon in 2003.

In addition to their success at Wimbledon, the Williams sisters took the Ladies' Doubles at the French Open and US Open in 1999, and won the Australian Open twice in 2001 and 2003.
