It’s official now, Rohan Bopanna & Sumit Nagal qualify for Olympics 2024

Paris Olympics 2024: This will be Rohan Bopanna's second Olympics after 2012. On the other hand, Sumit Nagal has made the cut for the first time.

Indian tennis star and veteran Rohan Bopanna has officially made the cut for Paris Olympics 2024, the International Tennis Federation confirmed on Monday. On account of his superior ranking — World No. 4 — Bopanna made the cut automatically, like the other top 10 players on the circuit.

“With the entry process due to be completed by the end of June, the full entry list for Paris 2024 will be announced by the ITF on 4 July,” it said. On the other hand, India’s best singles player, Sumit Nagal, who recently achieved his career-best ranking of 77, is also through for Olympics 2024.

Who’ll Partner Rohan Bopanna for Men’s Doubles in Olympics 2024?

While Rohan Bopanna has made it clear that he wants to partner N Sriram Balaji for the Games, who recently got to his best men’s doubles ranking of 67, the final call will be made by the AITA. In the past, the selection of partners for Olympics has created unwanted controversies, which can be avoided.

Interestingly, recently, N Sriram Balaji’s name was added in the TOPS list, so there’s no reason why as to why he won’t for Paris 2024. In fact, selectors’ chairman Nandan Bal made it clear that Sriram Balaji could be the right choice for Rohan Bopanna.

“I don’t see any reason to go against the player’s wish,” Bal told the Times of India. “I’d go with what Rohan has to say. He has opted to play with Balaji. My way of looking at it is that he is looking for someone who has an explosive game.

“He wouldn’t want to play long points on clay. He would prefer a partner who can serve big and volley, finish the points quick instead of long rallies. That’s my personal opinion.”
