2012 London Olympics: One Athlete With Houston Ties To Compete On Tuesday

On the fourth day of the 2012 London Olympics games, there will be only one athlete with Houston ties that will be competing on Tuesday. Liezel Huber will be competing in the women's doubles tennis event with her partner, Lisa Raymond.

It will be the first match for the pair during the games and they will take on Poland and the sister combo of Agnieszka and Urszula Radwanska. The Radwanska sisters have already competed and won a match in the Olympics on Monday against the Slovakian contingent of Dominika Cibulkova and Daniela Hantuchova in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1.

Huber, who was born in South Africa, is coached by her husband, Tony, and has been playing tennis professionally since 1993.
