New Delhi, June 11: Indian tennis icon Rohan Bopanna is all set to participate in the Paris Olympics 2024. Young tennis sensation Sumit Nagal too has been picked to represent India in the Olympics.

Bopanna and Nagal secured Olympics quotas in tennis through their ATP Rankings in doubles and singles, respectively.

World No 4 Bopanna, who had represented India at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics, comfortably secured a quota for India, maintaining a spot in the top 10 of the doubles rankings since November last year.

Meanwhile, Nagal made the cut-off after climbing 18 places in the singles rankings last week, occupying the last spot among the eligible players who secured quotas via world rankings, as per Olympics.com

Nagal, who was ranked 95th last week, achieved a career-high ranking of 77th following his ATP Challenger title win at the Heilbronn Neckarcup in Germany on Sunday.

The men's and women's singles events at Paris 2024 will each feature 64 players. The top 56 eligible men's singles players, as per the ATP rankings released on June 10, have secured quotas for their respective countries. However, each nation can obtain a maximum of four quotas.

The men’s and women’s doubles draws at Paris 2024 will feature 32 teams, a team being a pair of athletes from the same nation, a maximum of two teams per nation.

The tennis qualification window for Paris 2024 concluded on Monday. National Olympic Committees have until June 19 to confirm the utilisation of their allocated quotas.

Bopanna is a seasoned campaigner. Hopefully, it would be last Olympic appearance. If he can sign off with a medal, it would be a great tribute to a glorious career in tennis. (With IANS support)
