LONDON (AP) — Serena and Venus Williams have pulled out of women's doubles at Wimbledon.

The tournament referee's office announced the withdrawal Tuesday, but did not give a reason.

The Williams sisters have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles as a pair, most recently at Wimbledon in 2012.

Both won first-round singles matches Monday.

In doubles at the All England Club last year, they stopped after three games in the second round, because Serena was ill.
