Tennis: Williams Sisters Storm Wimbledon Takes Doubles Crown

  Venus and Serena Williams returned to Center Court three hours after doing battle in the singles final to secure the Wimbledon doubles title with a 6-2 6-2 thumping of American Lisa Raymond and Australian Samantha Stosur on Saturday.

The American sisters put aside Venus’s straight-sets victory in the day’s showpiece to stand on the same side of the net and launch an array of powerful shots at the 16th seeds.

The 11th seeds stormed through the first set by breaking in each of Raymond’s service games, dishing up groundstrokes that their opponents could not touch.

An enthralling match featuring some fast and furious rallies at the net drew to an end in just under an hour when Venus lobbed to give the sisters their third doubles title at the All England Club.
