if there is such a thing as justice, lisa got her share of it at the
athens 2004 olympic games. the original 2004 usa olympic team was: jennifer capriati,
chanda rubin, venus williams and serena williams for singles. lisa raymond, martina
navratilova, serena williams and venus williams for doubles. the 10th of august 2004, 3 days
before the beginning of the games, jennifer capriati withdrew from the team. lisa took her
place. a chance to play both in singles and in doubles. what a way to balance out the
unfairness of four years before.
