The WTA released a series of short videos with players talking excitedly about the Olympics, ranging from Serena Williams, Li Na, Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic. Best tidbit: Serena says the first thing she'll do if she wins a medal is hit up the Golden Arches for a Filet-O-Fish. Fair play.

You can watch all the videos on the WTA's YouTube channel, but here are the choice ones:

Serena Williams, who lost to eventual gold medalist Elena Dementieva, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, in Beijing.

*****

Maria Sharapova was forced to miss the Beijing Olympics due to the shoulder injury that would eventually require surgery.

*****

Li Na progressed all the way to the semifinals in Beijing when she was ranked No. 42, losing to Dinara Safina, 7-6 (3) 7-5. She lost to Vera Zvonareva in the bronze medal match, 6-0, 7-5.
