Venus, Serena Return To Court For Fed Cup

Venus Williams and Serena Williams returned to the court to play for the United States in Fed Cup this weekend. It was Venus' first match since the 2011 U.S. Open, and Serena's since her 4th round loss at the 2012 Australian Open. The United States swept Belarus 5-0, although the Eastern European's top star (and 2012 Australian Open championVictoria Azarenka did not play, with the Williams Sisters contributing to 3 of those 5 points. Serena won bot her singles match (albeit looking pretty scratchy doing so) and Venus teamed up with Liezel Huber to win the doubles match.

The sisters needed to play for the United States in order to maintain their eligibility to represent their country at the 2012 London Olympics this summer.
