Earlier in the day, Serena Williams Crip Walked her way to a Gold Medal in women’s single at the Olympics. Then later on, she teamed up with her big sister Venus to win gold in the women’s double. It was an offical Williams sister takeover.
Serena Williams teamed with big sister Venus to win the women’s doubles title at the Olympics on Sunday, adding to the singles gold she won on Centre Court at Wimbledon a day earlier.
The American sisters beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 under the roof on a rainy afternoon at the All England Club. Venus – with her red, white and blue braids pulled back into a bun – closed out the match with a backhand volley winner after the Czechs saved a pair of match points.
”We all talk about this, ‘We have so many medals,’ but to be able to add to that, it’s like an unbelievable feeling,” Venus said. ”You know that in that count, there you are. It feels amazing.”
