HISTORY OF TENNIS AT THE OLYMPICS
Tennis appeared at the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 but was dropped from the programme after the Paris 1924 Games.
It returned 64 years later, with Miloslav Mecir (Czechoslovakia) and Steffi Graf (West Germany) winning gold in the two singles tournaments at Seoul 1988.
The Tennis competition at London 2012 will be held on the grass courts of Wimbledon, which has its own Olympic history. The venue staged the Tennis competition when London first hosted the Olympic Games in 1908, with Great Britain winning all six gold medals.
Mixed doubles will be contested at Olympic level in London for the first time since 1924.Anthony Wilding, who won eight Grand Slam titles in his career, won New Zealand's sole medal while competing for an Australasia team - bronze in 1912.
