Re: 2004 OLYMPIC TENNIS EVENT FACT SHEET

Yep. It's considered an optional event. The ITF Olympics site has the list of points (I'm sure it's somewhere in this forum too).

Re: 2004 OLYMPIC TENNIS EVENT FACT SHEET

My understanding is that ranking points are given in singles only, not doubles.
Can anyone verify this?
