Since when do the Olympics have more prestige than a masters series event?
This was never the case. The olympics have very little history as far as tennis is concerned.
And quick - who was the last guy to win the gold medal in Olympic tennis competition? Exactly.
Was it Massu?
edit: Hah, I remembered that without looking it up! I Just confirmed my doubts.
I see your point, but if it did not matter too much and it's worth less than a Masters, why do so many tennis players bother going?
There has to be something going for the Olympics in terms of players wanting the Gold.
