Olympics
Tennis fans have a lot to cheer about in 2012 London Games. And to feed your curiosity, here's a list of gold medals won during the history of the sport in Olympics.

Tennis

Being played in France since the 11th century, the modern version of Tennis was included in the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 held in Athens. For the next 6 Olympics, it remained in official programme before being taken out of it from 1928. After a long wait of 64 years IT was reintroduced in the 1988 Seoul Games and has been a part of the Olympics ever since. As of 2008 Beijing Games, it is USA that is at the top with 17 gold medals. However, as far as total medals tally is concerned, it is Great Britain that leads with 40 medals: 15 gold, 13 silver, and 12 bronze. With the Wimbledon 2012 just concluded and Roger Federer once again being the winner, it would be interesting to see whether he can replicate his success at his favourite grass turf or if Rafa will once again challenge the mighty hero to once again win the gold. William sisters, Serena and Venus, too will look to recreate the magic just as in last Olympics. In the 2012 London Games, the 172 players will compete for the gold and in 5 different events. The competition will be held at Wimbledon from 28th July to 5th August.
