USTA names U.S. Olympic Tennis Team for 2024 Paris Games

The USTA announced the American players representing the U.S. Olympic Tennis Team for the Olympic Games Paris 2024.

The women’s team includes singles world No. 2 Coco Gauff, No. 5 Jessica Pegula, No. 11 Danielle Collins, No. 17 Emma Navarro, and doubles No. 11 Desirae Krawczyk. Coached by USTA Head of Women’s Tennis Kathy Rinaldi, the U.S. women’s team will feature four singles players in Paris–Gauff, Pegula, Collins and Navarro–and two doubles teams: Gauff and Pegula, Collins and Krawczyk.

The men’s team includes world singles No. 12 Taylor Fritz, No. 13 Tommy Paul, No. 44 Chris Eubanks, No. 53 Marcos Giron, and world doubles No. 6 Rajeev Ram and No. 15 Austin Krajicek.

The U.S. will also announce its one mixed doubles team that will compete in Paris–taken from the above-named players–at a later date.

Team nominations are subject to approval by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and the International Tennis Federation. The United States Paralympic tennis team will be announced in late July.

The 2024 Olympic Games will be held from July 26 to Aug. 11 in Paris, with the tennis competition staged from July 27 to Aug. 4 at Roland Garros. The U.S. has won 24 Olympic medals (14 gold) in men’s and women’s tennis since it returned as a full medal sport in 1988–more than any other nation.

Ram, a mixed doubles silver medalist in 2016 in Rio, will compete in his third consecutive Olympics. Competing in their second Games are 2021 Tokyo Olympians Pegula, Paul, Giron and Krajicek, while Gauff–who was named to compete in 2021 in Tokyo but did not compete after testing positive for COVID-19–Collins, Navarro, Krawczyk, Fritz and Eubanks will make their Olympic debuts.

Eligible singles players have the opportunity to accept or decline the nomination to the 2024 Olympic tennis team. If a tennis player declines, the next highest-ranked American singles tennis player has the nomination extended to them.

Tennis was part of the Olympic program from the first modern Olympiad in 1896 until 1924.  After a 64-year hiatus, tennis returned to the official Olympic program in 1988, becoming the first sport to feature professional athletes.
