So is there a chance that Venus will enter mixed doubles as well as Serena entering Mixed?
I think they will win Gold in Womens Doubles, I think they will get gold and silver in singles (as long as they are on opposite sides of the draw)
In mixed, same story as long as they are both playing?

"I hope it will help me channel my favorite superhero and manifest another gold medal," admitted Williams in a statement.

Really like the design and hope she gets to sport all four of the colors.
Yass!! That outfit looks so cute. Looks like it is rather revealing at the back too
Glad to see EleVen get back on form this year after so many misfires between the pink Vagina dress to that Wonderland monstrosity

^I don't think it is bad. You're not supposed to smile, but the angle is a bit weird, so besides that it is fine. The one on the NBC site was far worse, from the plastic surgery scare photo shoot.

Rafa pulled out of the Olympics

I know right - talk about bad lighting and camera angle!

Why did these idiots take these pics of the players like they did?
Appears to be just one more idiotic brain fart.

Don't worry, it's wrong she's playing singles and Doubles. I was on ESPN's board the other day and posters were complaining about how they slighted Venus by only listing her as a doubles player. She didn't come back at Miami and fight like hell to get her ranking up to just play doubles. Don't go by ESPN because they still had Sharapova listed in the WTA rankings as #1 as of this past Sunday, while they had the Men's rankings up to date. ESPN is really not the most reliable site to get tennis news these days and especially about Venus.

Someone said in the thread that it's for security concerns. That all players were told not to smile or wear makeup. If you go here you'll see that ALL the athletes photos are like that. Although I must say some are better lit and the angle and distance from the camera are better than others. I think it's to help with facial recognition software in the security cameras at the Olympic sites.
