Venus and Serena together again as a doubles team!
With an eye on the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, Serena and Venus Williams are entered in women’s doubles at the French Open — their first Grand Slam tournament as a team since 2014.
In the doubles draw for Roland Garros, announced Sunday, the sisters will open against Jelena Ostapenko and Yulia Putintseva.
The Williams-Williams pairing has not appeared in a bracket at a major since the U.S. Open two years ago. They hadn’t played together anywhere since then until this month at the Italian Open, where they lost their first match.
The American siblings already have won three gold medals in doubles, at the 2000, 2008 and 2012 Summer Games. They also own 13 Grand Slam titles as a pair, most recently at Wimbledon in 2012.
