In addition to their 14 major doubles titles, the last of which came at 2016 Wimbledon, Serena and Venus have teamed to win three Olympic gold medals in doubles, winning in 2000, 2008 and 2012.
They are the most recent team to hold all four major doubles titles at one time with wins at 2009 Wimbledon, 2009 US Open, 2010 Australian Open and 2010 French Open.
Earlier this month, Serena confirmed the US Open would be her final tournament before evolving away from tennis. In singles, she is set to face Montenegro's Danka Kovinic in the first round Monday night.
Venus will play her first-round match on Tuesday against Belgium's Alison Van Uytvanck.
