_____ Tennis _____
Where: Olympic Tennis Center, Athens Olympic Sports Complex.
When: Aug. 15-22.
Medals: Men's singles and doubles, women's singles and doubles.
Outlook: Andy Roddick, Roger Federer and the Williams sisters head a high-quality field, with ATP and WTA ranking points at stake. The hard courts are the same as those used at U.S. Open, which starts Aug. 30, so that favors Roddick and his 140-150 mph serves. The heat might not be too much of a factor for the men, who'll play best-of-three-set matches until the singles final.
