Tennis Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games



Recommended Posts

I don't understand the Qualification format for Doubles.

 

The document states that 32 teams will participate. 1 team is the hostteam. 

Numbers 1 to 10 on the Doubles World Ranking will get a place.

Then: Additional places up to and including the 24th Direct Acceptance team will be allocated to the highest ranked teams based on the Combined Ranking of each team on 7 June 2021.

 

After the 24th team, which teams will fill up the draw to 32 teams? I presume they will use the Combined Ranking again, but why are they speaking of the 24th Direct Acceptance?

 

Hopefully Dutch Demi Schuurs will qualify, however she's not in the top 10 of the World Doubles Ranking. She wants to play with Kiki Bertens. 

On the men's side Wesley Koolhof and JJ Rojer (both outside the top 10) want to participate.

If they really don't want to play, they can at the very least fake some injury or something a couple of weeks before the start. Withdrawing like this, more than a year ahead, is just disrespectful to

Maybe the Zika virus will make an appearance in Japan

After the 24th it most probably will be singles players who have already qualified. The only situation in which more doubles players will get a chance is if the 86 spots for a gender are not filled. But since 64 spots will be filled by singles we should assume after 24 teams it will be singles players who will complete the draw.
