The most dominant sibling pairing in women’s tennis history, Venus Williams and Serena Williams are set to make some magic at the Arthur Ashe Stadium Thursday night.

For the first time since the 2018 French Open, the legendary sisters have teamed up to compete in doubles at a Grand Slam. They will start off their US Open doubles campaign against the Czech pairing of Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova.

While Serena Williams has strongly hinted that the US Open will be her final grand slam in her tremendous career, she hasn’t said it straight up, which will make Thursday night even more phenomenal.

Williams: the best unbeaten record in tennis history

The Williams sisters have had substantial success separately as well as together. In the doubles pairing discipline, the two have been undefeated in Grand Slam finals, having claimed 14 Major trophies so far.

Both have also won the US Open twice, in 1999 and 2009, and been ranked World No. 1. The Williams haven’t participated in doubles in New York since 2014, when they made it to the quarterfinals.

Serena Williams has also been going strong in singles, making 40 years old look nothing different than before.

Following her victory over World No. 2 Anett Kontaveit on Wednesday night, Serena electrified the atmosphere at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. We can only imagine how the stars will shine in New York when the two sisters get on the court together.
