The 2012 London Olympic tennis competition will take place on the grass of Wimbledon and the traditional all-white clothing we’re used to seeing at the venue will be replaced by as many colors as players wish to wear. The all-white rule is in force only for Wimbledon, so the Olympics will be free of such strict dress code even though the tennis competition will be held at the All England Club.
The last Olympic Games were held in Beijing in 2008 and women’s tennis competition singles medalists were Elena Dementieva (gold), Dinara Safina (silver) and Vera Zvonareva (bronze). The Williams sisters won in doubles. (source: Reuters, photo: Ian Wilson)
