Venus and Serena Williams capture French Open doubles title

Tennis - French Open


Venus and Serena Williams defeated Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik 62 63 to win French Open title, their fourth Grand Slam doubles title in a row. They haven't lost a Grand Slam match since the third round of last year's French Open.

This was 12th Grand Slam doubles crown for Williams sisters. They previously won Australian Open titles in 2001, 2003, 2009 and 2010, one French Open in 1999, four Wimbledons in 2000, 2002, 2008 and 2009 and two US Opens in 1999 and 2009.

"It's really tough when you play one Williams. When you play two, it's really not an easy win," Venus said. "Kveta and Katarina played really well this whole tournament. We just played the big points a little bit better today.

"Doubles for us isn't just for fun - we're playing for the title."


"It feels great. I mean, we have a Williams Slam," Serena said on the four straight majors. "When you're out there playing singles, it's a great feeling. But to play doubles with your sister, your flesh and blood, that's even better."

"We're the longest standing doubles team. We've been playing since the '80s," Venus said. "We've got quite a record. We don't even remember the first time."

"I remember a couple of things," Serena replied. "My dad told Venus to cross more, so I think she got upset and crossed when the person was serving. She ended up volleying the serve. It was so funny. My dad, he's so positive, he was like, 'Oh, no, no, Venus, not that. Just wait until after the serve.'

"I promise you, every tournament I think about that when we're in doubles."

"I remember that," Venus added.

They're only the third women's doubles pair to win four major titles in a row. Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver did it in 1983-84, and Gigi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva did it in 1992-93.

Katarina Srebotnik captured the mixed doubles title, alongside Nenad Zimonjic, here on Thursday.
