Until Sunday Night, Venus and Serena Williams were undefeated in the Olympic doubles. Unfortunately, the sisters were eliminated in round one at the Rio de Janeiro Games losing to the Czech Republic’s Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova, 6-3, 6-4. Before Sunday the two never won any kind of match as a pair.
After the loss Serena was straight to the point:
We played terrible and it showed in the results.
Earlier that day, Serena won her first round event in singles tennis, while Venus was beaten in the first round on Saturday night.
