Defending champions Vika Azarenka and Max Mirnyi from Belarus did not participate due to Azarenko’s pregnancy. The American pair Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Jack Sock won the gold medal, by beating their compatriots Venus Williams and Rajeev Ram 6–7, 6–1, 10–7 in the final. It was the first time that a tennis tournament was decided by a match tie-break, the format used for mixed doubles in RIo. There were no clear favourites for this event and the top three seeds all lost their first round matches.
