Venus aims for 2016 Olympics - and not in the geriatric field either!

After her disappointing loss to sister Serena in their US Open quarterfinal Marquee Match last night, Venus Williams dropped a bomb on the unsuspecting press contingent during her post-match presser.

The 7-time Grand Slammer told the media,

...for the record, I'm aiming for the 2016 Olympics. We'll be playing doubles. I'll be here for a long time still grinding and earning titles and making life hard for anyone and everyone.
What?! 2016??! V will be, like, 80 when those Olympics roll around. But you know what? She'll still be kicking WTA arse and taking names.

How sad for the other lady

  1. Seriously?! Who thinks she got confused and meant to say 2012? I'm all for it though! I was pulling for her last night...

  2. I really think she meant 2016, because they're aiming to host the Olympics that year in Chicago.

    I pity the newcomers. Heads will roll, oh how they will :D

  3. This is a perfect example of why Venus is the best advocate of women's tennis since BJK.

  4. it will be a very sad day for tennis is general when venus retires...I dont know if people really understand what venus has done for this sport...
