Iconic venue named for 2024 Olympics tennis
Roland Garros will host the 2024 Olympics tennis tournament where Alexander Zverev and Belinda Bencic will be hoping to retain their titles from Japan in 2021
The home of the French Open will become an Olympic venue for 10 days from July 24 – August 4th as the Paris site is set to host the Paris 2024 tennis tournament.
The tournament will feature men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles whilst the champions from Tokyo at the last Olympics tennis will only have to wait 3 years to defend their titles due to that games taking place in 2021 rather than 202o due to the COVID pandemic forcing a one year delay.
The Olympic singles event is the one major title that has eluded both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic but as the Swiss will be 43 years old by the time the tournaments starts then it’s unlikely he’ll be able to fulfil that dream. Djokovic however will only be 37 years old in 2024
It’s official : Tennis will take place from July 27 to August 4 in Paris in 2024 ✨
See you in the emblematic site of tennis, in Roland-Garros for 10 days of madness 🤩
