(Paris) In the Olympic year, the Roland-Garros tournament, completed on Sunday with the coronation of Carlos Alcaraz, was the qualifying field for the Paris Olympics (July 26-August 11), where most of the big stars will be present even if uncertainty around Novak Djokovic’s state of health remains.

Injured in the knee during his round of 16, the Serb, who will be demoted to world No.3 on Monday in favor of Jannik Sinner (1st) and Alcaraz, was operated on this week.

He has not yet given any details as to the duration of his convalescence even though he indicated on Instagram on Thursday that he hoped to “be ready for his return to the courts as quickly as possible”.

On Monday, the publication of the ATP and WTA rankings will give a first major indication of the composition of the draws (64 men and 64 women) of the singles tournament for the Games.

Fifty-six players will be admitted directly based on the ranking on this date. But with a limit of four players per nation.

What about the big international stars? The new No. 1 Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek, who won the women’s title for the fourth time, will probably be in Paris this summer.

As for Rafael Nadal, eliminated from the start by finalist Alexander Zverev, he obviously cannot hope for a place simply on the basis of his ranking (he will be 261st on Monday).

However, his goal remains to compete in the Olympics. And according to the qualification rules, an Olympic champion or Grand Slam winner can claim to be selected, provided in particular that they appear in the top 400 in the world rankings.

In total, 64 players will make up the singles draws at the Games, 32 for doubles and finally 16 for mixed doubles.
