Date6 – 10 August 1984
StatusOlympic (non-medal)
LocationLos Angeles Tennis Center, Los Angeles, California
Participants32 from 22 countries

Because professionals were not allowed in the 1984 tennis demonstration, the field was somewhat weak, but the women’s winner was West German Steffi Graf, who would win the 1988 Olympic tennis gold medal, when tennis returned to the Olympic Program. Graf would go on to win 22 Grand Slam titles, and is considered one of the very greatest female champions of all-time. In 1988 she won the only Golden Slam in tennis history, winning the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, the Olympic gold medal, and the US Open. In Los Angeles, Graf defeated Yugoslavia Sabrina Goleš in the final. Goleš would also play as a professional, but never approached the transcendence of Graf, winning one professional title, with a top world ranking of 27th in February 1987.
