The 2024 Paris Olympics will comprise five tennis competitions running from July 27th to August 4th, and the entry lists for the showpiece event have been revealed.

Tennis was reintroduced as an Olympic sport in 1988 after a long hiatus and has since become part of the Olympic Games with singles, doubles, and, as of 2012, mixed doubles tournaments. This year, a total of 41 countries will be represented.

The singles tournaments will each have a 64-player draw in the men's and women's, of which 56 qualified based on their official ATP and WTA ranking of June 10th, 2024. Players with ambitions to win a gold medal must win six rounds.

The runner-up will be awarded a silver medal, and the third-place finish, to be contested by the losing semifinalists, will win bronze. All matches will be held on the clay courts of Roland Garros.

One nation will be allocated a maximum of four spots in singles for their qualifying players. In the men's entry list, a total of six countries will boast a high of four players. These are Argentina, France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain and the USA.

The Spanish team has assembled two of the main favorites: Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal, who account for 15 Roland Garros titles. Serbia's hopes will be shouldered by Novak Djokovic, who is pursuing his first gold medal. The World No. 2 is joined by countryman Dusan Lajovic.

The Italian men's team will be led by World No. 1 and reigning Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner. The USA will also send a strong team, with two of its four men ranked inside the Top 20. They are Taylor Fritz and former Roland Garros junior champion Tommy Paul.

Andy Murray will play in his final tournament before retiring. He is slated to play in singles and doubles as part of a four-man British contingent that includes Jack Draper, Cameron Norrie, and Daniel Evans.

Russian players will compete as Individual Neutral Athletes comprised of Daniil Medvedev, Roman Safiullin, and Pavel Kotov. Greece (Stefanos Tsitsipas), Switzerland (Stan Wawrinka), Denmark (Holger Rune), and the Netherlands (Tallon Griekspoor) are some of the countries with one representative in singles.

Poland's Iga Swiatek is the overwhelming favorite to win the gold medal. She has won four Roland Garros titles in the last five years and dropped just one set in her run to the title last month.

Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina, the USA's Coco Gauff, Greece's Maria Sakkari, and Brazil's Beatriz Haddad Maia will compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals. These players have previously impressed on the Roland Garros clay.

A strong contingent from Czechia will also compete for the top prize. They include Tokyo silver medalist Marketa Vondrousova, 2021 French Open Barbora Krejcikova, and former French Open runner-up Karolina Muchova.

Katie Boulter will represent Great Britain, while Naomi Osaka of Japan will play in her second Olympics. She is the only woman to take a set from Swiatek at last month's French Open.

This year's French Open runner-up Jasmine Paolini leads a three-woman Italian squad, while Jelena Ostapenko, a former champion at the clay-court Grand Slam, is Latvia's only representative.

With Ons Jabeur withdrawing from the Olympic Games, Egypt's Mayar Sherif will represent the African continent. Defending gold medalist Belinda Bencic is on maternity leave, while 2016 Rio gold medalist Monica Puig is now retired. That means we are guaranteed a new gold winner.
