|American sisters (L)Venus and (R)Serena Williams display the gold medals won in Women's Doubles at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing|
Returning to the lawns at Wimbledon for the 2012 Olympics, 2008 Doubles Gold Medalists Venus and Serena Williams will join Coach Mary Joe Fernandez, Varvara Lepchenko, Christina McHale, and doubles specialists Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond.
The Men's team will consist of Coach Jay Berger and teammates Andy Roddick, John Isner, Ryan Harrison and Donald Young, along with doubles specialists none other than the Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike Bryan.
We are without a doubt sending the necessary muscle and talent to the games, hopefully our gold medal count will continue to rise - GO USA!!
The official Olympics start date is Friday, July 27, with the tennis portion of the games running July 28 thru August 5. It will be interesting to see how the opening and closing ceremonies compare to those in Beijing which were nothing short of spectacular.
