Professional tennis is already ringing the doorbell for the Paris Olympics in 2024. The Tokyo Summer Olympics were only held last year after being postponed from 2020, when they were originally scheduled, because to the Covid19 epidemic.
Since there has only been a three-year gap between the two events, Paris 2024 has already seen its first announcements. Tennis is specifically the subject of one of the first formal events. The tennis competitions’ location and date have been set by the 2024 Olympic Games’ 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. On the other hand, the court could not help but be the most renowned in tennis history: the Roland Garros venue will host the Paris Olympic Games.
So, following the hard courts in Tokyo and even before that in Rio de Janeiro, it’s time for the Olympics’ clay courts.
The anticipated players are Nadal and Djokovic.
Many tennis players will be competing in Paris for the highly desired Olympic gold medal.
The men’s and women’s winners of the previous Japanese edition, Belinda Bencic and Alexander Zverev, respectively, won’t be absent. However, there are concerns about Rafael Nadal‘s appearance at Roland Garros, as his physical state might not be in his favor until the middle of 2024.
Novak Djokovic is one person who, despite his age, has already committed to attending. The former world number one has always wished for Serbia to win an Olympic medal, but his wish consistently escapes his grasp. It might also be Jannik Sinner‘s turn because Sinner decided to skip the Tokyo Olympics in order to prepare for the upcoming North American hardcourt season.
Matteo Berrettini had to withdraw from the Japanese Olympic Games owing to an injury as well.
