Three gold medals are coming Sunday in the world of tennis, with women’s doubles, men’s singles, and mixed doubles preparing for the podium.

Mixed doubles gold will kick off the day, with the top honors potentially going to Venus Williams and Rajeev Ram of the United States. Venus is seeking her fifth gold medal, having secured one in singles and three in doubles. If she wins gold, she’ll move ahead of sister Serena for most tennis golds in Olympic history.

It’s Russia and Switzerland dueling in women’s doubles, with Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina across the net from Timea Bacsinszky and Martina Hingis.

Men’s singles sees Andy Murray tangling with Juan Martin Del Potro. After being stuck in an elevator before his first match, JMDP went on to beat Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal en route to his date with the reigning gold medal winner Murray.
