As The Guardian just reported:

"Here is perhaps the least surprising outcome of the Games: the awesome Williams sisters have secured the women's doubles for the United States, disposing of the Czech pair Hlavackova and Hradecka 6-4, 6-4. And Serena crowns a dominant display with a delightful twirl of celebration after plundering the gold medal point."

Those sisters would be, of course, American tennis greats Venus and Serena Williams. The Czechs are Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka.

Serena had already won the gold medal in women's singles.

The BBC has the stats for today's doubles final here. It took the sisters 51 minutes to win set one; 42 minutes to take set two.
