WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Inspired by her sister's comeback, Venus Williams made one of her own at Wimbledon on Friday.
Williams and partner Jamie Murray won a mixed doubles that was the first in any tennis discipline for the seven-time Grand Slam singles champion in more than 10 months.
They defeated Alicja Rosolska and Michael Venus 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 in a first-round match on No. 1 Court.
"(Entering) it was definitely super last minute. Just inspired by Serena," the 42-year-old Williams said.
Serena Williams played her
first match in a year on Tuesday night on Centre Court, losing to Harmony Tan.
