    Lisa Raymond said the thing missing from her trophy case is an Olympic gold medal.

    While the dream of winning gold remained alive Tuesday as Raymond and doubles partner Liezel Huber came from behind in the second set to beat Agnieszka and Urszula Radwanska 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) in the second round of the Olympic Women’s Doubles Tennis completion.

    Raymond and Huber got a first round bye and the Radwanska sisters posed a formidable second-round foe.

    In Set 2 Raymond and Huber trailed 5-2 before tying the set at 5 a piece. After each team held serve, Raymond, who hails from Wayne, Pa., and Huber won the tiebreaker to take the match.

    Limiting mistakes proved key for Raymond, an 11-time grand slam champ, and Huber. The duo made only six unforced errors in the match to 15 for the Radwanska sisters.

    Raymond and Huber, the No. 1 tennis team in the world, await the winner of Germans Julie Goerges (fresh off beating Allentown’s Varvara Lepchenko in Singles play) and Anna-Lena Gronefeld and Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina.
