The most dominant siblings in tennis history have arrived in Rio de Janeiro.

Serena and Venus Williams, the defending two-time women’s doubles gold medalists, touched down in Brazil late Tuesday night as the pair get set to compete in their fourth and fifth Olympics, respectively.

Overall, the pair has won doubles gold three times (2000, ’08, ’12), and each sister has won singles gold, with Serena capturing the top prize in 2012 while Venus won the 2000 tournament.

Former Olympian Sharrieffa Barksdale traveled alongside the sisters and snapped a photo shortly after their evening arrival Tuesday:
