Serena and Venus Williams lose in doubles at the U.S. Open

Serena and Venus Williams lost to Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova 7-6 (5), 6-4 in the first round of Thursday’s US Open doubles tournament in what may have been the Williams sisters’ last professional doubles match together.

Serena Williams isn’t done at the US Open yet. The 23-time Grand Slam winner is scheduled to face Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round of the singles competition on Friday.

Williams hasn’t said definitively if she will retire after the US Open, but she did strongly hint that the tournament, which she has won six times, would be her career swan song.

“I’ve never liked the word retirement. Perhaps evolution is the best word to describe what I intend to do,” she said in an essay published by Vogue. “I’m here to tell you I’m evolving away from tennis and towards other things that are important to me.”

This is an evolving story. The Los Angeles Times will soon be reporting more on the Williams sisters at the US Open. Serena and Venus Williams lose in doubles at the U.S. Open
