Olympic gold has become a fixture in the Williams family. Venus and Serena captured their 2nd doubles gold medals by routing Spanish duo Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual 6-2, 6-0. They ran their record to 10-0 in Olympic doubles competition. They didn’t play in 2004 in Athens because Serena was injured.
Venus also has a singles gold from Sydney in 2000.
“It does mean more for me to win it with Serena, to share this kind of moment with your sister,” Venus said. “I mean, we are practically joined at the hip.”
