Serena Williams has been dominant at Wimbledon 2012, and she will continue that success when she represents Team USA in the 2012 Olympic Games.

Played in London, the tennis portion of the Games will also take place at Wimbledon, boding well for Williams.

Williams is no stranger to playing in the Olympics. In 2000 and 2008, she and her sister, Venus, won the gold medal in doubles. She has struggled in singles play, however, with her furthest run being the quarterfinals during the Beijing Games.

However, that's about to change.

Williams might be the hottest woman in tennis right now. She has dominated at the All England Club to advance to the final at Wimbledon after being ousted in the first round of the French Open. She will face Agnieszka Radwanska in the final, seeking her fifth Wimbledon title.

Williams can't be stopped.

She's only dropped two sets at the All England Club. She is playing arguably the best tennis of her career and can dominate on grass courts.

She is about to find new success in singles play at the Olympics, and she may continue her success in doubles as well.

Williams seems like a lock to win at Wimbledon after dominating on the fabled grass courts. When she returns for the Olympics, she will still be riding this high in her career and will continue the trend during the London Games.

While Williams will be competing against the best in the world, she is used to doing so. She is currently ranked No. 6 in tennis, but she could be much higher after her match against Radwanska.

Williams' ability to play on grass and her current play will take her far in London, and she has a chance to medal for the U.S. in singles play.

Williams is playing incredibly well right now, and by peaking at such an opportune time, she will surely impress at the Olympics.
