Serena Williams won the women's singles titles at the 2012 Summer Olympics
Andy Murray won the men's singles titles
at the 2012 Summer Olympics

Tennis was first contested as a Summer Olympic sport in the 1896 Olympic Games, held in Athens. In the inaugural Olympic Games, only two tournaments were played: men's singles and men's doubles. Women were allowed to start to compete in singles and mixed doubles tennis events at the Olympic Games in 1900. Between 1928 and 1988, tennis was not included in the official Olympic program. Demonstration tennis events were, however, held twice, first in 1968 and later 1984. It was reinstated as a medal sport in 1988.

Kathleen McKane Godfree is the all-time record holder for the most Olympic medals in tennis, with one gold, two silvers, and two bronzes. Six players have earned four medals including Serena Williams and Venus Williams who sit on top of the overall medal table with four gold medals. Eight Americans have earned two or more gold medals, while a further ten athletes from other countries have achieved the feat, including six from Great Britain and two from France.
