Sisters handed doubles wildcard

The All England Club have given a wildcard to Venus and Serena Williams to play in the doubles at Wimbledon.
The sisters do not play enough doubles throughout the year to qualify direct but as reigning champions have been handed the wildcard.

Britain's Richard Bloomfield and Jamie Delgado won their places in the main draw for the men's singles via the new Wimbledon wildcard play-off event.

Compatriots Arvind Parmar and Mark Hilton will join them.

America's Corina Morariu, who has battled back from cancer, has been offered the chance to play in the women's singles.

why they're the defending champions!!!
I don't know..it seems so unfair to me. Other teams have to work and play enough tournaments to get in..and then two players who rarely play doubles get in just like that..even get seeded.

oh well, it's just the prize of winning the GS before....let those teams win a GS also, so they won't have a hard next time....The williams has earned this and rightfully deserves this treatment. :worship:

Nice to see Corina get one :) No offence to the Brits that missed out...but I think it will be put to better use with her.

I'm happy Corina got one. :)
Serena has a ranking. Venus didn't play much that's why they have to get a wildcard to enter. Serena's ranked 11.

Vivi and Paola better start practicing considering they will have to face ai and kim as well as the sisters supreme.

It's only unfair to you because it is the Williams sisters and they win. Face facts; they have won 6 Grand Slam doubles titles, including two at Wimbeldon. Why should they have to play qualification rounds when others who have not achieved as much as them should get a wild card?

Get real.
