Their victorious grand slam doubles return follows being chosen as wild-card entry into the doubles tournament. Serena and Venus were crowned the French Open Women’s Doubles champions in 1999 and 2010, and together, have won 14 grand slam doubles titles. This could be number 15. 


Way to go, Venus and Serena! We’ll be rooting for you!
