According to Olympic rules, the top 56 singles players earn an automatic spot in the Olympic games.
Each country only gets to send 4 players.
Venus Williams, being ranked 47th in the world, has the eligibility to make the Olympics team.
Among the other eligible pros are her sister, Serena, Christina McHale and Varvara Lepchenko, an Uzbekistan native who became a U.S. citizen recently.
So even though Venus lost in the second round of the French Open, her standing is still high enough to allow her to compete in the summer games.
Everyone is just waiting on the official announcement.
"The Olympics is just the ultimate in sports. I grew up watching those documentaries. My dad had us watch those. It was his dream for us to play there. Once I got a taste of it, it was just amazing. Every time I leave the Olympics, I go through withdrawals. It's the pinnacle of sports. I love it there."
Well hopefully you and you sister will be there again, sweeping up the golds!
USA! USA! USA!
