About the Olympic Tennis Event

Tennis was played in the first modern Olympic Games at Athens 1896 (as one of the original nine Olympic sports) and was a mainstay until Paris 1924. After a couple of demonstration/exhibition events, it returned as a full medal sport at Seoul 1988, going on to become one of the most coveted prizes in tennis.
