Game, set, match. Venus and Serena Williams, who have together dominated women’s tennis for the last decade, sold their elegant pad at 28 West 38th Street for $2.1 million, banking a cool $750,000.

The apartment they bought in 2005 is a relative humble 1,800-square-foot one bedroom with one bath, though the listing suggests there’s plenty of room to expand to two or even three bedrooms.

The sisters never actually lived in the pad. In fact, in the first few years they owned it, the tennis champions never even got around to furnishing it, the New York Daily News reported. They briefly rented the apartment out in 2013 at $7,000 a month.

The buyer in the deal were Ted and Nina Wells, the attorney who investigated the “deflategate” scandal for the NFL, and the former New Jersey Secretary of State, respectively.
