TOURNAMENT FORMAT

The ladies have a particularly tough road to sow in the Olympics. A total of 32 players will be on the court on both Saturday and Sunday to kick off this tournament, and the winners will all face off in the Round of 32 on Monday. From there, there's tennis on Tuesday (Round of 16), Wednesday (Quarterfinals) and Thursday (Semifinals) before the medal rounds on Saturday, August 13.

All matches are single elimination, and the format of each match is going to be best-of-three sets.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Serena Williams – Williams might only have one Grand Slam to her name this year, but she's still the best thing going in women's tennis. She's got four Olympic gold medals in her career, though she claimed her first singles title four years ago in London. It was an emotional moment for her after three victories with her sister in doubles, and this is very likely her last go around for gold medals and is incredibly important for her. Williams still has the most lethal serve in women's tennis, something which is only going to be accentuated on the hard courts of the Olympics Tennis Center, and there's just no way whatsoever that there is a player out there who will be better than a +200 underdog in any situation against Williams.

Venus Williams – Sure, younger sister, Serena has all of the headlines, but Venus Williams is still a force to be reckoned with as well. Her days of 100 MPH serves are said and done with, as are her days of being one of the top five players in the world, but she's coming off of a great Wimbledon run in which she was a semifinals, and this is a tournament she has always played relatively well in, including winning it in 2000 in Sydney. To turn around and win it 16 years later in Rio would be one heck of an accomplishment.

Johanna Konta – Konta is a bit of a reach at 66 to 1, but she did reach the semifinals of the Australian Open thanks to a big serve and a relatively favorable draw along the way. Konta also reached the fourth round of the U.S. Open last year, proof that her best surface is on hard courts. She only has one career WTA title, and it would be a massive shock to see her actually win this event, but given the price tag on her head, we see a lot of value even though she's going to have to go through a gauntlet to get there.
