Roland Garros stadium Olympics tennis 2024

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

Tickets are already on sale for the event which can be purchased here.

Tennis only became a full medal sport at the 1988 games in Seoul. Andy Murray is the only player to have won two singles gold medals, and the only singles player to have retained the Olympic title
