More Olympic Medal In Tennis For India images
By Vipul Kashyap Ace lawn tennis star Yuki Bhambri believes that India could win Olympic medals in tennis in the 2028 and 2032 Games. Talking to ANI, Yuki said: "It's hard because it's a world sport. Tennis is probably 2nd most popular sport in the world behind football. For Indians, the big thing is that we could represent the nation in Olympics.
It remains the last hockey gold for India at the Olympics. Leander Paes, bronze medal – men’s singles tennis, Atlanta 1996; Karnam Malleswari, bronze medal – women’s 54 kg weightlifting, Sydney 2000; Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, silver medal – men’s double trap shooting, Athens 2004
India had to return empty handed in the next three Summer Olympics. At the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta, tennis player Leander Paes won a bronze medal at the men's singles event ending a barren run of 16 years without a medal at the Olympics and also became the first individual medalist since 1952.
The medal was India’s first individual medal at the Summer Games since wrestler KD Jadhav won bronze in 1952. Though the defining moment of his illustrious career came in singles, Leander Paes earned his place in the tennis hall of fame as a doubles player. In fact, Paes is regarded as one of the most successful tennis players in world tennis.
After being 3-1 down at one point, India made a big comeback to beat Germany 5-4 and claim the bronze medal.
