Williams sisters win doubles match at Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Venus and Serena Williams played their first doubles match in two years Thursday and looked like their usual dominant selves, breezing into the second round of Wimbledon by beating Vesna Dolonc of Serbia and Olga Savchuk of Ukraine 6-0, 6-3.

The Williams sisters have not played a doubles tournament together since losing in the 2010 Wimbledon quarterfinals, with both having struggled with injuries and illness, but are looking for their 13th Grand Slam doubles trophy.

The only official doubles match either Williams has played since 2010 was in the Fed Cup in February, when Venus teamed with Liezel Huber to help the United States to beat Belarus.

The Williams sisters broke their opponents four times and never lost their serve.

Serena reached the third round of the singles tournament earlier Thursday while Venus lost in the first round.
