WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- A couple of hours after reaching her seventh Wimbledon final, Serena Williams returned to Centre Court with sister Venus to secure a spot in the semifinals of the doubles tournament.

The Williams sisters routed Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears 6-1, 6-1 in less than an hour Thursday. The Williams sisters are playing a doubles tournament for the first time in two years and are looking for their fifth Wimbledon title together. They'll next play Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond.

French Open champions Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci's 25-match winning streak ended when they lost 6-3, 6-4 to Czech duo Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in their quarterfinal match.

Men's defending champions Bob and Mike Bryan overcame Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram 5-7, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to reach the semifinals.
