The United States Olympic tennis team is rounding into final shape before the 2024 Summer Games in Paris. However, the official team won’t be announced until later this June.

In women’s singles, Daniele Collins and Madison Keys mathematically clinched their places based on their results at this year’s Roland Garros.

They will join Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula who qualified earlier in the year. Emma Navarro will be the first alternate.



For the men, Americans Taylor Fritz, Tommy Paul and Ben Shelton qualified earlier in the season already. However, Shelton has said publicly he will likely skip the Olympics in favor of playing events during the U.S. hard court swing.

Frances Tiafoe and Sebastian Korda secured their spots at Roland Garros as the next players able to compete. Chris Eubanks would be the alternate.

The qualifying period for tennis ends on June 10. On that date, both the ATP and WTA ranking lists will determine Olympic qualifiers. Each country can field a maximum of 12 players (six men, six women). Each country will be limited to no more than four players in both men’s and women’s singles.

For doubles, up to two more U.S. men and U.S. women can be added to both doubles and mixed doubles. Only priority will be given to those currently ranked in the top 10 in world in doubles.

Rajeev Ram has already secured his berth in what would be his third appearance at the Games.

Tennis at the Olympic Games will take place from July 26 to August 11.
