There are 31 strictly doubles players, so I guess the total of 86 players restriction was voided.
It's very good, since otherwise many good teams would miss the opportunity.

Bhupathi/Bopanna should be listed with an entry ranking of 26, not 16.
Cilic/Dodig should be listed with an entry of 69, not 49.

Fwiw, I'm actually counting 34 doubles-only for 98 total players (did you exclude Granollers, F.Lopez and Benneteau?), so that could mean the WTA is sending only 74 players.

Cabal/Giraldo rather than Cabal/Farah Poor Robert.

Klizan/Lacko Dumb decision, when you have players like Polasek and Zelenay.

They (Polasek/Zelenay) haven´t ranking to play in the Olympics and WC for them would raise number of players in Olympics.

Lacko and Klizan are playing in singles, so WC for them isn´t raising the number of players. Slovak tennis federation was asking for Mertinak/Polasek WC in first way, then Lacko/Klizan. But Olympics denied first apply for the reason I mentioned above. They offered WC for Lacko/Klizan instead. BTW, Mertinak is far better doubles player than Zelenay.

So first think, then talk.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Yes, I forgot about Mertinak, and agree he is better than Zelenay. But Klizan/Lacko is just a horrible combination. I don't really think that total number of players is a valid consideration. If Mertinak/Polasek is the better combination, they should play.

And I don't really have access to news about the Slovak tennis federation

You have not understand, certainly. It is valid for Olympics as a tournament, because then they would have to enlarge the number of players, if it was only on Slovak tennis federation, Mertinak/Polasek would play immediately.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Why is it valid? I don't get it.

By my count there are 98 ATP and 89 WTA players announced by the ITF. Interesting stuff...

Re: Olympic Doubles Entry List (updated June 26, 2012)

How will the 8th seed be decided if Bopanna/Bhuphati and Federer/Wawrinka are still tied?

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Normally, ATP tournaments consider the combined doubles ranking for seeding purposes. So, Federer/Wawrinka will not be seeded with their low double rankings...

Below is a list of the potential top 8 seeds based on the above assumption...

Bob Bryan / Mike Bryan (United States)
Mariusz Fyrstenberg / Marcin Matkowski (Poland)
Mahesh Bhupathi / Rohan Bopanna (India)
Jürgen Melzer^ / Alexander Peya (Austria)
Christopher Kas / Philipp Petzschner (Germany)
Marcelo Melo / Bruno Soares (Brazil)
Colin Fleming / Ross Hutchins (Great Britain)
Janko Tipsarević^ / Nenad Zimonjić (Serbia)

Highest Ranking is only for entry list, seeding are still based on doubles rankings.
