TENNIS
Although tennis was on the programme of the very first games of the modern era, it was banished from the Olympics at the start of the 1924 games, because the IOC had serious doubts about the amateur status of players. They were as it happens all professionals.This ostracism lasted until the Los Angeles games in 1984 when tennis players and also professional soccer players were again allowed to compete. In those games tennis was a demonstration sport, but it was fully rehabilitated in Seoul in 1988.Steffi Graf in the women's matches and Miroslav Mecir in the men's were the first Olympic champions of the new era.
