Unlike Djokovic, Serena Williams, sensationally knocked out of the French Open by Virginie Razzano on Tuesday, has her eye on the mixed doubles title at the Olympics.

She is playing the mixed at Roland Garros with American compatriot Bob Bryan to fine tune preparations for the Olympic tennis event which will be played at Wimbledon.
