Norristown native and Wayne resident Lisa Raymond will team with Liezel Huber of South Africa as the No. 3-seeded team at Wimbledon, beginning Monday.

Raymond, who never made it big as a singles player, is in her 18th year on tour in doubles. Her 70 Women’s Tennis Association doubles titles rank her seventh all-time, behind some of the game’s all-time greats: Martina Navratilova, Rosie Casals, Pam Shriver, Billie Jean King, Natasha Zvereva and Jana Novotna.

Raymond and Huber were ousted in the semifinals of the French Open, but they will be among the favorites again at the All-England Club.
