17 days before the start of the Olympics

21.07.2008 | Tennis

Just 17 days to go until the Olympics in Beijing. With the participation of 17 of the top 20 men and 18 of the top 20 women, the 2008 Olympic tennis tournament will certainly be an event not to be missed from 10 to 17 August on the courts of the new Olympic Tennis Centre in Beijing.

 

Roger will lead the strongest field ever to enter the Olympic tennis event since tennis returned as a full medal sport in Seoul in 1988. All five of the top men will compete in Beijing, and seven of the top ten women.

 

Tennis is an Olympic sport since the first modern Olympic Games took place in Athens, Greece in 1896. Tennis was dropped from the Olympic programme after 1924 amid turmoil over such issues as where to draw the line between amateurism and professionalism, and it didn't return as a medal sport until 1988. Today, Olympic competition includes men's and women's singles and men's and women's doubles.

 

The Olympic Green Tennis Court is one of the new venues in Beijing. The flower-shaped Tennis Center is meticulously designed for natural ventilation to ensure the quality of the competitions for athletes and spectators.The venue has a capacity of 17400 seats, including 10000 seats in the main court. This year, the Olympic tennis and Paralympic wheelchair tennis competitions will be held at the Center.
