LONDON (AP) A day after completing a career Golden Slam, Serena Williams still wants more.
Williams was already thinking about defending her Olympic tennis gold medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games only hours after teaming with big sister Venus to win the doubles gold for the third time.
"I plan on being there unless an act of god doesn't allow me to," Williams said Monday.
For all its history, tennis has only been a regular on the Olympic program since 1988, yet it will be in the spotlight at the London Games as much for its venue as its players. The venerable All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club is set to host the Games less than a month after a new Wimbledon champion is crowned. Many of the game's biggest stars are set to compete, looking to follow Grand Slam glory with Olympic gold as mixed doubles make its debut.
