Williams Sisters Lose U.S. Open Women’s Doubles Semifinals
Serena Williams will have to settle for playing in only one U.S. Open final this year.
Williams and sister Venus fell 6-4, 6-2 to the Czech team of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the women’s doubles semifinals – a match played shortly after Serena Williams won in singles to set up a final against Victoria Azarenka.
Hlavackova, meanwhile, still has a chance of winning two titles at Flushing Meadows this year.
The Williams sisters have 13 major doubles titles, while Hlavackova and Hradecka are trying to win their second.
