Until the 1980s, Argentina's tennis was a sport for the upper classes. Mary Terán confronted the leaders of the Argentine Tennis Association, with the goal of promoting tennis among common people. In the early 1980s she organized a campaign to support Guillermo Vilas and help to spread tennis in the country, when the Argentine Tennis Association was campaigning against Vilas.
