Serena Williams reveals 'deep secret' after gold medal win

August 5, 2012

WIMBLEDON, England – With the gold medal finally — finally — hanging around her neck, Serena Williams allowed herself to admit the truth.

She really did want to win the Olympic tennis singles championship, more than she ever said. Despite protestations that gold at Wimbleon would just be "gravy" on a legendary career, when the moment came, it blew her away, in more ways than one.

"I always wanted to win a gold medal (in singles) secretly," she said Saturday shortly after dismissing Russian Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 on the same grass where she won the Wimbledon title last month, "and I've always said it doesn't matter because I already have a gold medal (in doubles), and I really believe that. But deep, deep, deep, deep down I wanted it in singles as well."
