Serena and Venus Williams will make what may be their final run at winning a U.S. Open tennis doubles championship together when they take on Linda Noskova and Lucie Hradecka in a first-round match on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET. The Williams sisters last won a U.S. Open doubles title in 2009, and have not combined to win a doubles championship since the 2016 Wimbledon crown, their sixth in that event. When combining forces in doubles, the Williams have not been stopped. In 14 grand slam finals, they are 14-0.
Caesars Sportsbook lists Serena Williams-Venus Williams as the -175 favorite (risk $175 to win $100) on the money line, while Linda Noskova-Lucie Hradecka is at +130. Noskova has won one ITF doubles title, while Hradecka has won two grand slam doubles titles, the last coming in the 2013 U.S. Open.
