Serena and Venus Williams will be back on the track for the first time in four years after receiving a wildcard in doubles at the US Open, organizers confirmed on Saturday. Serena Williams, who is expected to retire after the US Open, has not partnered with older sister Venus in doubles since the duo lost in the last 16 at the 2018 French Open. They haven’t played doubles at the US Open since 2014.
Playing together, the Williams sisters were a dominant force in Grand Slam doubles tennis, winning 14 titles and three Olympic gold medals.
The last of their 14 Grand Slam doubles wins came at Wimbledon in 2016, 17 years after their first title together at the 1999 French Open.
Serena Williams, who turns 41 next month, is expected to retire from tennis after the US Open and finish a career that has seen 23 Grand Slam titles.
Venus Williams, 42, has not yet announced plans to retire.
