Australian Open Tennis 2010: Venus and Serena Williams Win Ladies Doubles

American sisters, Venus and Serena Williams, have won their 11th Grand Slam doubles title today with a 6-4, 6-3 victory in the Australian Open 2010 doubles final over Cara Black and Liezel Huber.

The pair, seeded second, overcame their top seeded opponents in just under one and a half hours.

Venus, 29, admitted after the match that she had not realised their second break of serve in set two was a match winner: “I actually didn’t know the score and I thought that it was 5-2” her sister, Serena, 28, however, was already celebrating what she hopes will be the first of two Australian Open 2010 titles – she faces Justine Henin in the Ladies Final on Saturday.

Serena hinted that they will be taking part in more doubles tournaments in future, admitting that they “wished we had have played more [doubles] when we were younger” – if this is the case, then they just might become the most successful pair in history: Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver won 21 Grand Slam titles.

Whatever they do in future, the Williams’ proved yet again that, as a twosome, they are every bit as difficult to play as individually, perhaps even more so.
