2010 French Open Williams Watch-Big Sis Out In Singles

We have one less Williams sister playing tennis in the Roland Garros women's singles draw.

Number Two seeded Big Sis was upset by Russia's Nadia Petrova 4-6, 3-6 to put Venus' attempt to win her first French Open singles title to a screeching halt.

She's still playing tennis in Paris, but it will only be doubles with Serena until hopefully June 3.

Venus did get a little redemption by teaming with Little Sis to beat the Czech Republic's duo of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in straight sets 6-1, 6-2.

Team Williams moves on to the quarterfinals in their bid to win their first French Open doubles title since 1999. They will take on the duo of Maria Kirilenko of Russia and Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland.

Speaking of Little Sis, Serena's quest to win her first French Open singles title since 2002 is still alive.

She plays her fourth round match against Israel's Shahar Peer. If she gets past Peer, she gets the winner of the Justine Henin-Samantha Stosur match.
