According to the Athens site:

Draw (singles - 64)

48 direct entry based on June 14, 2004 ITF Rankings
2 "Tripatriate Commission Invitations" (whatever those are)
14 Final Qualification

"48 players will receive direct acceptance into the men's and women's singles events at the 2004 Olympic Tennis event based on the recognised international singles computer rankings of 14 June 2004 with a maximum of 4 players per NOC" (National Olympic Committee).

If more than 4 qualify (which could happen to a few countries), the NOC picks 4 players based on rankings

blah blah blah read the rest here

when's the last time he played?
full match: davis cup vs. us doubles (5 sets)
he also tried to play in a few more tournaments, but usually retired. he did win a match against a pretty decent player in a challenger in 3 sets.

That stubborn fool still think he can do some damage ... apart from his health not very likely. Pack the bag already! This train has already left the station. :rolleyes:
