Venus and Serena Williams win fourth Australian Open doubles title

Venus and Serena Williams win 2010 Australian Open doubles title

Venus and Serena Williams defended their Australian Open doubles title by beating Cara Black and Liezel Huber 6-4 6-3 in the final.

The Williams sisters have now won the Australian Open doubles competition four times, and collected their eleventh Grand Slam doubles title, which makes them the third most successful women’s doubles partnership in the Open era.

The top-seeded team of Black and Huber headed to the Australian Open with victories in Sydney and Auckland in the beginning of the season, but the second-seeded Williamses have now beaten the top-ranked pair in all three of their meetings. Serena and Venus actually have a perfect record in Grand Slam finals, and are 16-1 in finals overall.

The sisters now regret they didn’t focus on doubles earlier in their careers. "We were talking today about how we wished we had have played more when we were younger," said Serena, who is awaiting her Australian Open singles final against Justine Henin.

    Jacob, Venus is nice, and it was cool the way they hugged when Serena won the singles. I didn't watch this doubles interview you're mentioning.

    Congrats on your MacBook Pro!

    I never realized how fun doubles are until watching the sisters playing doubles; now I also watch the mixed doubles.
