Williams sisters win doubles title

By The Assam Tribune

PARIS, June 4 (Agencies): Venus and Serena Williams have won their fourth consecutive Grand Slam doubles title and 12th overall, beating Katarina Srebotnik and Kveta Peschke 6-2, 6-3 at the French Open.

The victory by the top-seeded sisters on Friday makes them only the third women�s doubles pair to win four major titles in a row. Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver did it in 1983-84, and Gigi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva did it in 1992-93.

It�s the siblings� second French Open doubles championship, but first since 1999.

The doubles title might ease some of the sting from the Williams� exits in the French Open singles tournament. No. 1-ranked Serena lost in the quarterfinals, and No. 2 Venus lost in the fourth round.
