President of the Russian Tennis Federation (RFT) Shamil Tarpishchev said that the Russian national tennis team as a whole has already qualified for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, but the decision on their participation will be made by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
The Olympic Games in the French capital will be held from July 26 to August 11.
— If we’re talking about the Olympics, what are the chances that our tennis players will make it there in force?
— From now on, everything is left to the international federations. Based on the results, we have already arrived strongly. But the solution will not lie in personal organizations, but in an international federation. I think it’s too early to draw conclusions before January.
– What about the rest? Do not be discouraged ?
“You have to train and fight for yourself. We did it in tennis. If everything was like tennis, there would be huge reserves. Our government pays a lot of attention to sport,” Tarpishchev said on the sidelines of the presentation of the National Sports Prize.
