Family affair as Serena makes long-awaited return

Serena Williams made her long-awaited comeback to tennis alongside elder sister Venus after the United States sealed a decisive victory over the Netherlands in their defence of the Fed Cup.

It is Serena’s first competitive match since winning her 23rd Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open, and the first time the sisters have played doubles together in this tournament since 2003.

The 36-year-old American took time away from the sport to give birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia and get married, to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

Both have been in attendance over the weekend, seated just behind the players’ box.

Serena told that her path back had been full of “ups and downs” but credited her sister with helping her find her rhythm.
