The introduction of sports such as tennis and golf to the Olympic movement has not been without considerable controversy with many holding polarized views on the subject. If the Olympics is indeed a festival of sport then surely there is a place for them at the Games but many argue that the Olympics comes way down the pecking order of priorities for tennis players compared to the four Grand Slams.
Tennis was first introduced at Seoul 1988, enabling Steffi Graf to complete the ‘Golden Slam’ and the Olympics has become a progressively bigger part of players’ careers since then. Andre Agassi’s emotional win at Atlanta 1996 played a big role in strengthening the bond between tennis and the Olympics with the sport’s most charismatic showman showcasing to the world how much it meant to him.
In Beijing 2008, all of the top players made no secret of their desire to win an Olympic gold. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer celebrated their triumphs in the singles and doubles as exuberantly as any of their many major titles while Novak Djokoic’s unrestrained delight at claiming a bronze medal for Serbia was one of the most touching moments of the Games.
