Well, none of course. Tennis only became an Olympic sport again in 1988 (after a gap of 64 years) so a bit too late for Laver and Borg. Sampras only appeared at the 1992 Games in Barcelona but lost in the 3rd round. Not sure why he didn't attend his home Olympics at Atlanta in 1996, you'll have to ask him but Agassi did his country proud by winning the gold there!
