The second seeds are the 2012 French Open champions, namely Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci. They return to New York ready to go though. The Wimbledon and Olympics champions, Serena Williams and Venus Williams, are also in the draw, although they needed a wildcard. Finally, the fifth seeds, Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova won the US Open two years ago, which shows that they know success too. Other dangerous teams could include Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka or dark horses Andrea Petkovic and Mandy Minella, Petkovic is just coming back from injury, there are other teams such as Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova, are in action this fortnight too and won't be slouches, which means that competition will surely be fierce.
