Serena was playing in her first tournament since giving birth last September and faced her sister for the 29th time, with Venus winning all but four of their meetings.

Serena saved three break points to hold her first service game but lost her third to love as Venus took a 4-2 lead and served out for the set in 37 minutes.

Venus raced to a 3-0 lead in the second set after breaking her sister twice and had a match point at 5-3 which Serena saved, before Venus saved a break point of her own at 5-4 and went on to take the match.

The number eight seed will go on to face Latvian Anastasija Sevastova who beat Julia Goerges in straight sets 6-3 6-3.

Second seed and Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki is through to the fourth round after seeing off Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-4 2-6 6-3, while US Open champion Sloane Stephens lost to Daria Kasatkina 6-4 6-3.

Serena Williams returned to Centre Court to win her second Wimbledon title of the day as she and sister Venus triumphed in the doubles final.

Their sixth Wimbledon success as a team came at the expense of Yaroslava Shvedova and Timea Babos, with the Williams pairing earning a 6-3 6-4 victory.

Between beating Angelique Kerber in straight sets to take the singles title and being called to the court for the doubles, Serena Williams had paraded her trophy, signed autographs, held a press conference and conducted television interviews.

But the 34-year-old and her 36-year-old sister showed little sign of distraction as they were comfortable winners against Kazakh player Shvedova and Hungarian Babos, Serena Williams putting away the match-winning backhand volley at the net.
