Opinions are a bit divided among TF members about how important the Olympics are. Fans of someone who ends up doing badly there probably will argue that it doesn't matter while fans of the one who ends up winning will say that it's the biggest thing ever. But yeah, I think it matters. And for Maria it would be huge if she would win because she would then have done it all - world #1 ranking, winning the four majors, the YEC, Fed Cup and the OG. The importance of everything else can go up and down as time goes by, but the historical importance of those events are set in stone.
