CareerEdit

Olhovskiy represented the Soviet Union at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul and Russia at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where he reached the quarter-finals as a wild card before falling to Brazil's Fernando Meligeni.

The right-hander won 2 career titles in singles (Copenhagen, 1993 and Shanghai, 1996) and 20 titles in doubles, French Open (1993) and Australian Open (1994) champion in mixed doubles. Olhovskiy reached his highest ATP singles ranking on 14 June 1993, when he became World No. 49, and his highest doubles ranking of No. 6 (31 July 1995). He played for the Russian Davis Cup team from 1983 to 2001.

He memorably defeated No. 1 seed Jim Courier in the third round of Wimbledon in 1992 to reach his second fourth round appearance at a slam (after the 1988 Wimbledon Championships). Courier had already won titles at both the 1992 Australian Open on hard court and 1992 French Open on clay, thus on his way to completing the Grand Slam and conditions were favorable, the 1992 edition being relatively poor in rain, allowing fellow baseline counter Andre Agassi to claim the title.
