Serena and Venus Williams are through to the third round of the women's doubles following a comfortable win this morning.

Venus and Serena Williams have made it to the third round of the women's doubles with a comfortable 6-1 6-2 win.

The sisters' progression to the next round never looked in doubt against Vera Dushevina and Olga Govortsova, as they were in complete control throughout the match.

The 12th seeds will face a tougher next next time out, as they take on fifth seeds Nadia Petrova and Katarina Srebotnik.

It was Serena's second win of the day after she cruised past Ayumi Morita earlier today.

The American duo have won 13 Grand Slam titles and three Olympic gold medals in women's doubles throughout their careers.
