    Default Serena-Venus lift doubles title at Australian Open

    Venus and Serena Williams have won their fourth Australian Open women's doubles title, beating Cara Black and Liezel Huber 6-4, 6-3 at Rod Laver Arena.
    The Williams broke Huber's service to open the second set and won the match when they again broke Huber, clinching it on a winning reflex volley by Serena. The sisters high-fived each other at the side of the court after the win.
    The Williams sisters won the Australian title for the first time in 2001 and added championships in 2003 and last year. Black, of Zimbabwe, and Huber, a South African-born American citizen, won the Australian Open doubles title in 2007 and were the top-seeded team in the tournament this year.
    "I have to congratulate Venus and Serena for a great tournament - you guys are too good," Black said.
    It was the 11th time the Williams sisters have combined for a Grand Slam doubles title.
    Serena has 11 singles majors, also, and is hoping for a 12th in the Australian Open final on Saturday against Justine Henin.
    "I look forward to more titles," Serena Williams said after the doubles win.
    The Williams sisters broke to go up 4-3. Serena Williams faced two break points on her serve in the next game before she held.
    With Venus Williams serving for the set, the sisters clinched the opener when Black netted a forehand on a second set point.
    Venus Williams has also won a mixed doubles title at the Australian Open - in 1998 with fellow American Jason Gimelstob. Serena Williams was a losing finalist in mixed doubles here with Max Mirnyi of Belarus in 1999.
    Black is still in this year's mixed doubles tournament, playing the semifinals later with Leander Paes of India against Lisa Raymond of the U.S. and Wesley Moodie of South Africa. Paes and Black are the top-seeded team.
