US Open: Williams sisters miss second round in doubles

Serena and Venus Williams missed the second round of the US Open doubles competition in their probably last sister act. The 14-time Grand Slam tournament winners from the USA lost to the Czechs Lucie Hradecka/Linda Noskova on Friday night 6:7 (5:7), 4:6. Thanks to a wild card, the Williams sisters were back on the pitch together for the first time since the 2018 French Open.

Serena Williams, who announced her retirement three weeks ago, can thus concentrate completely on the individual competition in what will most likely be her last Grand Slam tournament. In the third round, the 40-year-old will meet Australian Ajla Tomljanović on Friday. Venus Williams, on the other hand, failed at the start due to the Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck.
