Williams Sisters Plan To Compete At Chicago 2016 Games

Serena Williams, who beat her sister Venus for her third All England Club singles title Saturday, said she hopes to be around for a possible 2016 Chicago Olympics and add a first singles gold medal to her two doubles titles at the Summer Games.

The Guardian reports the 27-year-old said Saturday, “I am praying that they (Chicago) get the Olympics because I think it would be really special to play there. I want to be out there and there is nothing like doing something you love so much. Maybe by then I will be on one leg and going for it”.

The Washington Post reports Sister Venus said she is considering competing until the 2016 Games when she would be 36, if Chicago were chosen to host the Games.

The sisters also want to compete at the London 2012 Games. Venus said, “that’s pretty much where our timeline is heading”.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will announce the 2016 host city in October.
