After the video was shared on social media, in which Serena showed the racquet from last year, it certainly reminded everyone of the last match they played together. It was at the US Open in 2022. The Williams sisters played against Linda Noskova and Lucie Hradecka in the first round of the doubles event in Flushing Meadows, New York.

Even though they lost the match, it was still iconic as it was certain that they would not be playing like this together for a long time now, as Serena was about to retire. Now that the sisters have again taken to the court together, is there a chance we could see the iconic sister duo on the professional tour again? Although it is a distant possibility, given Serena’s commitment to her family, her die-hard fans would certainly keep their hopes high.
