Venus and Serena Williams have for the first time in their doubles career qualified for the doubles event at the Sony Ericsson Championships.
“I love playing doubles with Venus as we have so much fun on the court. This year, we actually decided to put more emphasis on our doubles careers and going to Doha has been on our mind all season,” said Serena, who has already qualified for the singles event at the season-ending Championships.
During the 2009 season the Williams sisters have won three Grand Slam doubles titles (Australian Open, Wimbledon, US Open) and a title at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford.
The world’s top eight singles players and top four doubles teams from the 2009 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season will compete for a share of the record $4.55 million at the Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha, Qatar.
