Martina/Raymond vs. Williams/Williams who will go to the olympics?

Each team is likely to want to go...badly.

What would Zina do. Should she just look at the rankings or go by 'who has the GREATEST potential' to do well?

It would be a real 'feel good' story for the olympics. Go Corina!

It would be nice to see Lindsay and Corina but I don't doubt it'll be Martina N and Lisa Raymond.

That's the primary reason Martina is playing doubles this year with Lisa - and what Martina wants, she will invariably get from her old pal BJK (and probably Zina as well.)

Still, Lisa deserves it after missing out last time .

Previous threads have discussed this. Countries can send more than one doubles team this year, so depending on ranking and selection, both teams can go.

Do they only need to send 1 team?
In singles they can send 3 players to make the draw.

To Be honest, and I am a Williams Fan, I would love to see Raymond/Nav go, b/c Raymond felt she was dubbed last time, and Venus and Serena will probably go in Singles, along with Davenport...and they will probably Sweep the medals.

If Williams/Williams wanna go, they´ll go. No questions asked!

Always bet on black!

Both Venus and serena will be able to go as single players. There's still 3 more months before the committee choose an Olympic team, V&S should be in the top 3 American by then if they play a few tournament in the next 3 months.

Williamsx2 are definitely going. If Martina/Lisa keep up their top 10 rankings, they will go too.

I would say Raymond/Navratilova

From Venus' interviews it doesn't sound as if she's gonna put any effort into playing doubles this year.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
