Best Answer

Following the 1924 Olympics, after 28 years of Olympic tennis, the International Olympics Commitee (IOC) and the International Tennis Federation came into conflict over the participation of "professional" players. IOC restrictions on players employed by newspapers was one of the more onerous rules, and the IOC sought to limit the professional competitions held in Olympic years.

As part of the overall relaxation of amateur determination between 1960 and 1984, tennis returned as a demonstration sport in 1968 and 1984, and to full status in 1988.

Mixed doubles, first played at the 1924 games, returned to Olympic competition in 2012.
