Williams was upset by 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano in singles on Tuesday, the American's only first-round loss in 47 Grand Slam tournaments.
She hadn't played mixed doubles at a major tournament since the 1999 Australian Open, when she and Max Mirnyi of Belarus lost in the final. Williams and Mirnyi won the 1998 Wimbledon and U.S. Open mixed doubles championships.
Her older sister Venus Williams watched Friday's match from the stands and said: "Serena had some bad luck."
