MIXED DOUBLES: NO SERENA
No Serena Williams in the mix for Olympics mixed doubles, it turns out.
Williams won't play mixed doubles at the Olympics, and the two U.S. teams will instead feature four doubles specialists the Bryan brothers, Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond.
Williams, who is competing in singles and with her sister Venus in women's doubles, had repeatedly said she also wanted to play mixed doubles. But she became coy about the subject in recent weeks and wasn't on the list when teams were nominated Tuesday. Competition begins Wednesday with 16 teams.
