Athletistic/Tennis. Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, 22-time Grand Slam champion, will be able to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris (France) thanks to a protected ranking. He is currently ranked 275th in the world rankings.

Recall that in each country, four tennis players with the highest score as of June 10 (after the end of Roland Garros) qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games. Athletes absent for a long period due to injury and A fall in the ranking may benefit from a protected ranking. Additionally, two spots at the Games are reserved for Olympic champions or Grand Slam winners who do not qualify by ranking, provided they are ranked among the top 400 in the world rankings.

Thus, the Spanish men’s team for the 2024 Olympic Games will be composed of the following tennis players:

– Carlos Alcaraz, world number three
– Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina, world number 32
– Rafael Nadal, 275th place (protected ranking)
– Pablo Carreno Busta, 1049th place (protected ranking)

Spain will also be represented by two doubles pairs, and there is a good chance that one of them will be Nadal and Alcaraz.

The Paris Olympic Games will take place from July 26 to August 11.
