Monica Puig won the women's singles title at the 2016 Summer Olympics
Andy Murray won the men's singles title at the 2016 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 (one gold, two silvers, and two bronzes) and Venus Williams (four gold, one silver) are the all-time record holders for the most Olympic medals in tennis. Serena Williams and Venus Williams won a record four gold medals. Andy Murray is the only player to have won two singles gold medals. Eight Americans and seven British players have earned two or more gold medals, while a further four athletes from other countries have achieved the feat.
