Raymond and Huber are ranked No. 1 on the World Tennis Association's women's doubles list, making Raymond the oldest women ever to hold the world No. 1 ranking. Raymond took that distinction from legend Billie Jean King.
Said the 30-year-old Williams, an all-time great in singles and doubles: "The fact that Lisa can play so well at her age makes me confident that I can keep going."
For now, Raymond is still going. These Olympics, in particular, are important to her.
In her nearly 20-year tennis career, Raymond has won six Grand Slam women's doubles titles and five Grand Slam mixed doubles titles and has reached the No. 1 ranking twice.
The one thing that's missing? An Olympic medal.
"We are human," Huber said. "You always want what you don't have. So that's what we want."
What Raymond wants has been pretty hard to obtain. In 2000, Raymond was the No. 1 doubles player in the world but was left off the Olympic roster in favor of Williams, who had no doubles ranking. Raymond challenged the decision - ironically, made by King, who was the captain of the U.S. team - but lost in arbitration.
In 2004, Raymond made the team and was paired with the legendary Martina Navratilova. The duo lost in the quarterfinals. Raymond failed to make the 2008 Olympic team.
But here, in 2012, might be Raymond's best chance. For the first time since 1924, mixed doubles will be played in the Olympics. Raymond is partnered with Mike Bryan as the No. 1 seed.
A little less than a month ago, Raymond and Bryan won the Wimbledon title in mixed doubles here at the All England Club.
"It's amazing," Raymond said. "Obviously for doubles-only players it's fabulous. We get another chance to play for a medal, another chance to represent our country, so I think we're all really excited about it."
Raymond is also excited about the opportunity to play on grass, one of her favorite surfaces.
"I grew up in Philly, where there's a lot of country clubs," Raymond said. "There's Merion Cricket, which has grass, I played there, and I played at Philly Cricket Club a lot. Grass has always suited me."
Then perhaps now, at age 38, is Raymond's time to finally win gold.
