Highlights - Williams sisters sweep into doubles final (UK users only)

Venus and Serena Williams swept through to the final of the ladies doubles with an emphatic 6-1 6-2 victory over Cara Black and Liezel Huber at Wimbledon.

The sisters, who meet in Saturday's singles final, showed no sign of fatigue en route to a 61-minute win.

Black and Huber fought off several match points before finally succumbing to their opponents' power.

Samantha Stosur and Rennae Stubbs will form their final opposition after wining the second semi-final.

The Australian pair overcome the second-seeded Anabel Medina Garriques and Virginia Ruano Pascual 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 6-2.

After losing the opening set on a tie-break, Stosur, who was beaten by Ana Ivanovic in the third round of the singles competition, and Stubbs found their service range and eventually wore down their Spanish opponents.

The Williams sisters are defending champions and will hope to land a fourth Wimbledon doubles title after victories in 2000, 2002 and 2008.
