Rafael Nadal will Partner with Carlos Alcaraz in Doubles at the Olympics in Paris but Skip Wimbledon

It is said that Rafael Nadal will skip the 2024 Wimbledon Championship in order to compete in the future Olympics in Paris. Furthermore, he could persuade Carlos Alcaraz to be his Olympic doubles partner.

Nadal returned to competition at the Barcelona Open in April of this year, following a protracted absence. The Spaniard has participated in nine games on the tour since his return, losing four of them. Alexander Zverev of Germany beat him in the opening round of the 2024 French Open.

According to the initial Wimbledon entry list for 2024, Rafael Nadal was anticipated to participate in the grass-court Major through protected rankings (PR). But according to recent sources, the Spaniard is thinking about missing the grass season in order to get ready for the Olympics.

Carlos Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal’s countryman, plans to enjoy his victory at the French Open by taking a few days off from tennis. In addition to taking a few days off, the Spaniard is traveling to Ibiza to celebrate winning his third Grand Slam championship.

The 21-year-old will, however, be making a comeback shortly when he competes in the Queen’s Club Championships prior to the 2024 Wimbledon. Ibiza is the only Spanish city that Carlos has visited more than any other, according to COPE, citing former tennis star and fellow countryman Ángel García. He adores it, and he wants to spend a few days on vacation and enjoy Roland Garros there.

he continued. “Then he will go to Queens like last year to prepare Wimbledon and try to defend the title. And from there Rafa wants to convince Carlos to play a tournament together on the ground and if not they will go straight to the Olympic Games, where the tennis tournament begins on July 27.”

Rafael Nadal can make a comeback, Garcia added, at the ATP 500 Hamburg Open, which takes place from July 15–21. For the ATP 500 event, Nadal and Alcaraz might collaborate as well, gaining experience ahead of the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
