During the 2010 French Open, they became the co-world No. 1 players in women's doubles. On 21st June 2010, Serena and Venus again held the No. 1 and No. 2 rankings spots in singles, respectively, some eight years after first accomplishing this feat.

At the time, Serena was three months shy of her 29th birthday and Venus had just celebrated her 30th birthday. The recent Q&A session on YouTube started with Serena asking her sister whether she loves her. “Serena and I have always had a special relationship.

So, there are 5 of us and I am the fourth, and Serena is the fifth. She is the only sister I am older to so I have always felt the need to take care of her and inversely she feels like she has to take care of me" - Venus said.
