ITF announces entries for Rio 2016 Olympics
NEWS ARTICLE

The ITF has announced the provisional list of singles and doubles entries for the Rio 2016 Olympic Tennis Event at the Olympic Tennis Centre in Barra Olympic Park on 6-14 August. Fifty-one countries will compete in this year’s event.
Andy Murray (GBR) and Serena Williams (USA) will defend their London 2012 singles titles, while Bob and Mike Bryan (USA), and Venus and Serena Williams (USA) will defend their doubles titles. Entries for the mixed doubles will be confirmed on site during the Olympic Tennis Event.
Sixty-four players will contest both the men’s and women’s singles. Entries for both events are a combination of direct acceptances and final qualification places based on the singles world rankings of 6 June, plus two Tripartite Commission Invitation Places.
Thirty-two teams will contest both the men’s and women’s doubles, with entries a combination of direct acceptances and final qualification places. Entries are based on the combined world rankings of each team on 6 June, with each player using the better of their singles and doubles world ranking. Any player ranked in the doubles Top 10 on 6 June was eligible for direct acceptance with a partner of any ranking.
There is a limit of four singles players per gender per country. Nations were also able to nominate up to two doubles teams per event, with a maximum of six players per gender per country in total.
Entries are also subject to players being in good standing with their National Association and meeting the minimum participation requirements in Davis Cup and Fed Cup. The ITF Olympic Committee will discuss any outstanding men’s appeals on Friday 15 July on behalf of any player who still has the opportunity to compete in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas ties on 15-17 July.
Entries for the 16-team mixed doubles event will be determined on site from those players already participating in singles or doubles, with a maximum of two teams per country. Teams have to be nominated by their National Olympic Committee by the deadline of 9 August.
The Olympic Tennis Event will be played on hard court, with ten match courts and six practice courts, including a 10,000-capacity centre court, and two additional show courts seating 5,000 and 3,000 spectators respectively.
The Draw for the Olympic Tennis Event will be held on site at the Olympic Tennis Centre on Thursday 4th August at 11am local time.
ITF President David Haggerty said: “We are delighted to welcome another outstanding field to the Olympic Tennis Event. Since the return of tennis to the Olympics in 1988, the event has continued to grow at each Games, with the current generation of players embracing this unique opportunity in our sport. We expect that the competition in each discipline will be fierce, and look forward to some memorable matches.”
Tennis was a part of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The first woman to win an Olympic medal in any sport was tennis player Charlotte Cooper (GBR) at the 1900 Olympic Games in Paris. After the 1924 Paris Games, tennis withdrew from the Olympics but returned as a demonstration event at 1984 Los Angeles and as a full medal sport at 1988 Seoul.

I'd have liked for the Melzer bros to get a wild card. Shame to have a doubles competition without Jurgen.

Who's Kohli's partner now?
We have to wait for ITF confirmation, unfortunately it is very slow, not like ATP, when we have list with automatic withdrawals/replacements... List closes on Tuesday 23:59, then vacancy will be filled by on-site players/teams. But I hope before Tuesday we will have some update...

I'm pretty sure for Zverev one of Germans from singles event will come in, I bet Brown. Italian Olympic Committee wants spot for Lorenzi/Fabbiano, their combined ranking is even better than current last accepted - Ratiwatana/Ratiwatana 210. I hope for Basic/Dzumhur - they have 217, so looks close to cut off. Too much speculation but even players dont know who is coming in :/

Sousa/Elias also have a better rank than some doubles who are already in.

Baker/Ram IN for Bryans

I don't know what to do - scream or laugh.

Firstly they say about maximum number of male players set for 86, then when it is already exceeded new player is accepted, instead of someone from singles...

Re: Olympic Singles Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated July 31, 2016)

Reason why Lopez isn't playing Olympics? He could have done some damage in doubles
