Paris Olympics 2024: Rohan Bopanna and Sumit Nagal get Olympic quota in tennis

Indian tennis stars Rohan Bopanna and Sumit Nagal have secured a quota for the Paris 2024 Olympics through their ATP rankings in doubles and singles respectively. World number 4 Rohan Bopanna has represented India at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics. He secured a quota for India by maintaining his position in the top 10 in the doubles rankings since November last year.

Sumit Nagal made it to the cut-off with a gain of 18 places in the singles rankings last week, which is the last among players to get quota through world rankings, according to Olympics.com. Sumit Nagal, ranked 95th last week, achieved his career-high ranking of 77 after winning the ATP Challenger title at the Heilbronn Neckarcup in Germany on Sunday. Nagal is ranked 77th in the rankings, but he is the last of the eligible players to get a quota through the world rankings.

The men's and women's singles competitions in Paris in 2024 will each include 64 participants. According to the ATP rankings issued on June 10, the top 56 men's singles players have earned quotas for their respective countries. However, each country is limited to a maximum of four quotas.

The men's and women's doubles draws in Paris 2024 will have 32 teams, with one team consisting of two athletes from the same country, giving each country a maximum of two teams. The tennis qualification window for Paris 2024 closed on Monday. The National Olympic Committees have until June 19 to confirm the usage of their quota.
