The winner of their final at Wimbledon on Saturday can claim
that accolade, which entails extra prestige rather than just prize money
or ranking points. Both champions have won all four Grand Slam titles
during their careers, but Olympic gold in singles has eluded them.

“Whether
I win or lose, that’s not the big deal,” said Williams, who defeated
world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus 6-1, 6-2 on Friday. “The big
deal for me, USA is guaranteed another medal. I’m guaranteed to just go
out there tomorrow and have fun. That’s all I can do.”

Roger
Federer, who has won 17 majors, also has a chance at a career Golden
Slam when he plays for the gold against Andy Murray on Sunday. He beat
Juan Martin del Potro in the longest best-of-three set match of the Open
era, at 4 hours, 26 minutes, while Murray ousted Novak Djokovic.
