The Williams sisters had already won doubles gold at the Sydney Games in 2000 and in Beijing in 2008, while Venus claimed the singles gold in Sydney and Serena won her first individual gold on Saturday, when she crushed Maria Sharapova in the women’s final.
Venus and Serena also joined Spain’s Conchita Martinez, who won silver in 1992 and 2004 and bronze in 1996, as the only tennis players to win medals at three different Olympics.
“It was so exciting to win the singles, but like I said at the beginning of the tournament my goal was to get gold in doubles here,” Serena said. —
