The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has published  the list of participants in the Olympic Games that will be held in Paris from July 26 to August 11, 2024. Russians are also on the list, but not all of those who could play. Which of the domestic tennis players will go to the Olympics and how their decision to compete in neutral status was perceived in the Russian Federation – in the NEWS.ru material.

Who was included in the list of participants of the Olympics? 

The Russian tennis players will compete in the Olympics in the following line-up: Daniil Medvedev, Roman Safiullin, Pavel Kotov, Ekaterina Alexandrova, Mirra Andreeva and Diana Schneider. Thus, out of the eight quotas won by the Russians, six will be used. 

Schneider is Russia’s No. 9. Her inclusion in the entry means that Lyudmila Samsonova, Daria Kasatkina, Anna Kalinskaya , Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Anastasia Potapova have withdrawn from the tournament.

The Russian team ‘s application initially  included two more people. Aslan Karatsev and Veronika Kudermetova were not on the final list.  

Vesnina unexpectedly appeared in the application 

The names of the tennis players who will play in doubles at the Olympics were previously announced: Daniil Medvedev / Roman Safiullin, Mirra Andreeva / Diana Schneider, and Ekaterina Alexandrova / Elena Vesnina. There are no applications for the mixed yet, the final lists will be published after July 24. The President of the Russian Tennis Federation Shamil Tarpishchev reported that Andreeva and Medvedev will most likely play in the mixed.

Vesnina unexpectedly appeared on the application list. The tennis player is the 2016 Olympic champion in a pair with Ekaterina Makarova, as well as the silver medalist of the Tokyo Games (2021) in a pair with Aslan Karatsev. After the previous Olympics, Vesnina did not participate in tournaments for two years and returned only this season. So far, not very successfully – she has only one victory in five matches. However, Elena could count on a wild card as the winner of the Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Next to Vesnina’s name there is a note that she still needs to confirm her neutral status. The final decision will be made by the International Olympic Committee. In the past, Vesnina was associated with CSKA, which could be an argument for refusing her participation in the Olympic tournament. News about the Russian’s successes can still be read on the “army men” website .

“I wanted, of course, to go to my fifth Olympics. And there is always hope for medals, for a good performance. But not everything is completely clear yet,”  Vesnina  said .
