The Australian pair of Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde was called "The Woodies". Together they won 61 ATP doubles titles, and 11 Grand Slam doubles championships, including six titles at Wimbledon. Going into the 1996 Olympics, they had won the last four Wimbledon doubles, and were heavy favorites. They did not disappoint, winning the final comfortably in three sets over Britain's Neil Broad and Tim Henman. They met their toughest opponents, the Dutch team of Paul Haarhuis and Jacco Eltingh, in the semi-finals, winning 18-16 in the third set.
