Serena Williams will be playing for two Wimbledon titles this weekend after she and sister Venus rallied from a set down Friday to reach the doubles final.

The Williams sisters struggled with their serves in the first set but recovered to beat American duo Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. They won seven straight games to take the second set and grab a 3-0 lead in the third.

They broke Raymond's serve again in the final game, with Venus hitting a volley winner on their first match point.

Serena will play Agnieszka Radwanska in the singles final as she looks for her fifth Wimbledon title. The Williams sisters will be going for their fifth title in doubles as well.

Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone of Italy were playing Czech duo Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the other semifinal.
