The sisters, seeded 10th, won their eighth Grand Slam doubles trophy after defeating their rivals 6-3, 6-3 in just 75 minutes.

“I think we complement each other on the court because we’re both extremely positive,” Venus said.

“We know when the other one moves, what the other one needs to do to compensate for that or to add to it.”

Williams will play Dinara Safina on Saturday in an attempt to win her 10th Grand Slam singles title.
