Rafael Nadal is a huge word, according to a former ATP champion

Professional tennis is already ringing the doorbell for the Paris Olympics in 2024. The Tokyo Summer Games were only held last year after being delayed by a year from 2020, the year of original programming, because to the Covid19 pandemic.

As a result, there are only three years between the two events, and as a result, Paris 2024 is already seeing its first announcements. Tennis is mentioned in one of the first formal announcements. The tennis competitions’ date and location have been determined by the 2024 Olympics social media account.

From July 27 to August 4, there will be five tennis tournaments: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. The Roland Garros venue, which will host the Olympic Games in Paris, guarantees that the court will be the most recognizable in tennis history.

Therefore, following the cement of Tokyo and even before of Rio de Janeiro, it is time for clay for the Olympic Games. Many tennis players will be competing in Paris for the coveted Olympic gold medal. The men’s and women’s winners from the last Japanese edition, Belinda Bencic and Alexander Zverev, respectively, won’t be absent.

Rafael Nadal, the undisputed host of Roland Garros, may not be able to compete until the middle of 2024 due to his physical condition. Novak Djokovic is the one who, despite his age, has already committed to attending.

The former world number one has always desired to win an Olympic gold for Serbia, but his goal eludes him time and time again. The Italians might take the stage in Paris. Jannik Sinner, who decided to forego competing in the Tokyo Olympics in order to prepare for the season on American concrete, might be the next.

On Alcaraz and Nadal, Ferrer

Many expect Carlos Alcaraz to follow in Rafael Nadal‘s footsteps in the years to come, but David Ferrer, a fellow countryman, believes that Carlos Alcaraz is still too young to be compared to the Mallorcan. In a recent interview with Super Deporte, Ferrer stated, “Nadal is a huge word, but Alcaraz is a tremendous player and without a doubt he will be a far better tennis player than me.”

The former player continued, “Carlos has to make his career, but I’m sure he’ll reach number one and win grand slams, since intellectually he’s a very well-established player.”
