WS will play dubs at Olypics's (article)

Here is an article on the subject:



Williams sisters, Capriati, Roddick on Olympic tennis teamsJune 26, 2004

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Martina Navratilova, Serena and Venus Williams, Jennifer Capriati and Andy Roddick head the U.S. Olympic tennis teams announced Saturday at Wimbledon.

Navratilova this week became the oldest woman since 1922 to win a singles match at Wimbledon, where she's also entered in women's doubles and mixed doubles. She'll make her Olympic debut at 47 and will play doubles.

``She has done everything possible to have that opportunity,'' U.S. women's coach Zina Garrison said. ``She is totally, totally geeked about going.''

Capriati will represent the United States in international team competition for the first time since a falling out with former Fed Cup captain Billie Jean King in April 2002. She won the gold at the Barcelona Olympics as a 16-year-old in 1992.

The Williams sisters won the women's doubles at the 2000 Sydney Games, and Venus won the singles gold. They'll play singles and doubles at the Aug. 13-29 Athens Olympics. Capriati and Chanda Rubin will play singles, while Navratilova and Lisa Raymond will be the other doubles team.

Roddick, the U.S. Open champion who's ranked No. 2, will be joined on the men's squad by No. 20 Mardy Fish, No. 30 Vince Spadea and No. 31 Taylor Dent in singles, plus the top-ranked doubles team of twins Bob and Mike Bryan. Roddick and Fish will play doubles together. ``I'm impressed at how excited our guys are,'' U.S. men's coach Patrick McEnroe said. ``It's honestly all they talk about.''

I wish Venus and Serena would stay their asses at home. I have a bad feeling about this upcoming Olympics.

Roby and Andy? Somehow I think you wanted that for, ahem, aesthetic purposes, eh?

Wow, I didn't know you were a psychic. Can you tell me what will be in my educational future. Cause, I hate not knowing

I think we all live (at least Americans, British, even Iraqis) in a dangerous world today. I think to live in fear and anxiety is silly. An accident can happen in the States, as well as it can happen in Greece (without any relation to terrorists).

I pray for all the athletes safety. But I wouldn't say they should not go.

GOOD LUCK

Venus
Serena

I wonder if they'll play doubles at a tournament before the Games. It would be nice to see them once again in doubles on a regular basis.
