Serena and Venus Williams won the doubles gold medal at the Olympics on Sunday. Adding to the singles gold Serena won on Centre Court a day earlier, the domineering duo beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4. "Crazy," Serena said. "I'm always copying her. I forgot that she did it in Sydney and I do it here. We're the same doubles team, we just split this to singles, so it's cool." The commanding performance by the sisters managed to rile up the crowd at Centre Court who broke into "U-S-A! U-S-A!" chants.

The twin tennis terrors are already setting their sights on 2016. "We're looking forward to Rio," Serena said, "and trying to win some medal there."
