Mansdorf competed in two Olympiads for Israel's tennis team in the men's singles event. At the 1984 Los Angeles Games, he was unseeded and lost in the first round to Carlos DiLaura of Peru, 6-2, 7-6. Four years later at the 1988 Seoul Games, Mansdorf was seeded No. 12, and reached the third round before losing to No. 2 seed Tim Mayotte (the eventual sliver medalist).
Considered Israel's greatest tennis player in history, Mansdorf won six singles titles during his professional career. He also competed in all four Grand Slam events, reaching the quarterfinals at the 1992 Australian Open. See our tennis section for more information.
