Biography

They don't play doubles very often, but when they do, the Williams sisters are almost unbeatable. They are especially dominant when there's a lot at stake, as 16 of their 21 titles are majors or Olympics. Another incredible accomplishment is they've never lost a Grand Slam final and only once in any tournament final.

The Williamses, along with Martina Hingis and Lisa Raymond, are the only active players to have completed the career doubles Grand Slam. They have four Australian Opens, two French Opens, five Wimbledons and two US Opens. Their 13 majors are the third-most for a duo in the Open Era. They are 36-4 at the Australian Open, 13-1 at Roland Garros, 39-3 at Wimbledon and 27-5 at the US Open.

Serena and Venus started playing together in 1997, and from 1999 through 2003 won at least one major every year. Among their accomplishments are being awarded Doubles Team of the Year in 2009, ascending to the No.1 doubles ranking for the first time in 2010 and after their French Open triumph in 2010, becoming just the third team in history to hold all four majors at the same time, with Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver and Gigi Fernández and Natasha Zvereva the others. After a two-year absence from the doubles court, they were victorious in the first tournament back - Wimbledon in 2012. They followed that up with their third doubles Olympic gold medal later that summer at the All-England Club.
