Martina Hingis and Jana Novotná were the defending champions, but they did not compete together this year. Novotná instead partnered with Natasha Zvereva as the first seed, whereas Hingis partnered with Anna Kournikova as the second seed. Novotná and Zvereva retired in their quarterfinal match against Lindsay Davenport and Mary Pierce, but Hingis and Kournikova reached the final where they lost to American sisters Serena and Venus Williams, 6–3, 6–7(2–7), 8–6. This was the first Grand Slam for the Williams sisters and would be their first step towards completing a Career Golden Slam in doubles.
