Olympic Final: Williams Sisters (USA) d. Hradecka/Hlavackova (CZE) 6-4, 6-4

Gold medallists once again!!

All four players exhibited great sportsmanship as well. They were really gunning for each other but they were all very quick to give and accept apologies.

Great match! The Czech held up their own as well but Serena and Venus were just too powerful in pretty much all departments.

3 doubles gold! Amazing
