  • Career Highlights: Currently ranked No. 1 in the world in doubles along with partner Lisa Raymond, the South African-born Huber is set to represent the United States in the Olympics for the second time. She partnered with Lindsay Davenport in the 2008 Beijing Games, where the pair lost in the quarterfinals 8-6 in the third set to Spanish duo Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual. Huber previously represented South Africa in Fed Cup play before she became a U.S. citizen on July 25, 2007, in order to gain eligibility to play in the Olympics four years ago. She has won five Grand Slam titles, prevailing at Wimbledon twice - in 2005 and 2007 with Cara Black of Zimbabwe. The lone Grand Slam title for the Huber-Raymond pairing came in last year’s U.S. Open, when they dropped one set en route to the trophy. Their partnership began in April of last season - the duo reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon and won their first title in Toronto in August before their breakthrough at the U.S. Open. They closed the year by winning in Tokyo as well as the WTA championships in Turkey.
