Highlights from Venus and Serena Williams’s U.S. Open first-round doubles loss

Serena and Venus Williams have a 6-5 lead over Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova in the first set.

Noskova, by far the youngest player on the court at 17, served the 10th game and had her team at 40-15 before Serena nailed a sharply angled winner off her backhand. Noskova then double-faulted to cause deuce, followed by a forehand winner from Serena after a nice save from Venus. On set point, Noskova hit a good second serve that helped her team get back to deuce. After another deuce, the Williamses again got to ad-out and a second serve from Noskova, but Hradecka hit a volley to save the set. The next two points, and the game, went to the Czech duo.
