WIMBLEDON, England -- Serena Williams and sister Venus Williams, Martina Navratilova, Jennifer Capriati and Andy Roddick head the U.S. Olympic tennis teams announced Saturday at Wimbledon.
 

Navratilova will be making her Olympic debut at 47, while Capriati will represent the United States in international team competition for the first time since a falling out with former Fed Cup captain Billie Jean King in April 2002.

The Williams sisters won the women's doubles at the 2000 Sydney Games, and Venus won singles gold. They will play singles and doubles at the Aug. 13-29 Athens Olympics. Capriati and Chanda Rubin will play singles, while Navratilova and Lisa Raymond will be the other doubles team.

Roddick, the U.S. Open champion who is ranked No. 2, will be joined on the men's squad by No. 20 Mardy Fish, No. 30 Vince Spadea and No. 31 Taylor Dent in singles, plus the top-ranked doubles team of twins Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan.

Roddick and Fish will play doubles together.

That seems odd. Nothing against Martina, but you sould think there are some younger players out there who could represent the country.
