Nadal and Alcaraz Set to Dominate in Olympic Doubles Tournament

The master of Roland-Garros and his heir will perform well together during the Olympic doubles tournament at the end of June.

The world of tennis dreamed of it, the Olympic tournament of the Paris 2024 Games will do it. As expected, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz will play together in the Olympic doubles tournament, as confirmed by the captain of the Spanish selection David Ferrer. “I couldn’t win an Olympic medal as a player, so I hope to do so as captain.”smiled Ferrer, unfortunate finalist Porte d’Auteuil in 2013 (6-3, 6-2, 6-3) against… Rafael Nadal.

Eliminated with honors by Alexander Zverev in the first round of the 2024 edition of Roland-Garros, Nadal will therefore have the opportunity to tread, perhaps for the last time, the Parisian ocher. 14 times winner of the Parisian Grand Slam, the 2008 Olympic champion was also selected in singles, like Alcaraz, naturally, but also Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Pablo Carreno Busta.

Fresh from winning the tournament, Alcaraz is moving forward as one of the big favorites for the Olympic tournament, where he could once again clash with reigning Olympic champion Alexander Zverev, his victim in the final on Sunday. It remains to be seen whether or not the young prodigy (21 years old) will skip the grass season and Wimbledon, where he is the defending champion, before returning to clay at the end of July.
