Williams Sisters To Play For Team USA In Olympics

Former gold medalists Venus and Serena
Williams are expected to play both singles and doubles for the
Olympic team announced today by the U.S. Tennis Association.
The nine-member squad also includes Lindsay Davenport, who won a
gold medal in singles at the 1996 Games. She'll play singles and
has been nominated for doubles with Liezel Huber, who is ranked
Number 1 in the world in doubles.
First-time Olympians James Blake, Sam Querrey and
Robby Ginepri were named to the men's team in
singles. The Number-1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan and a
teaming of Blake and Querrey have been nominated as the U.S. men's
doubles teams.
The International Tennis Federation is still filling roster
spots, and the USTA anticipates another place will be available on
the women's team. It's expected to go to Jill Craybas,
who would be a first-time Olympian at age 34.
Zina Garrison will coach the women's team.
Rodney Harmon will coach the men's team for the first time.
