The USTA announced the American players who will represent the U.S. Olympic Tennis Team for next month's Paris Olympic Games at Roland Garros.

Coached by USTA Head of Women’s Tennis Kathy Rinaldi, the U.S. women’s team will feature four singles players in Paris: Gauff, Pegula, Collins and Navarro, and two doubles teams: Gauff and Pegula, Collins and Krawczyk.  

The men’s team includes for singles World No. 12 Taylor Fritz, No. 13 Tommy Paul, No. 44 Chris Eubanks, No. 53 Marcos Giron, and World doubles No. 6 Rajeev Ram and No. 15 Austin Krajicek.


Coached by 2012 Olympic doubles gold medalist and Davis Cup captain Bob Bryan, the U.S. men’s team will also feature four singles players: Fritz, Paul, Eubanks and Giron, and two doubles teams: Ram and Krajicek, Fritz and Paul.

For a variety of reasons, Ben Shelton, Sebastian Korda, Frances Tiafoe, and Madison Keys have chosen not to compete this year in Paris.  

The U.S. will also announce its one mixed doubles team that will compete in Paris–taken from the above-named players–at a later date.  

Team nominations are subject to approval by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and the International Tennis Federation. The United States Paralympic tennis team will be announced in late July.

The 2024 Olympic Games will be held from July 26 to August 11 in Paris, with the tennis competition staged from July 27 to August 4 at Roland Garros.

The U.S. has won 24 Olympic medals (14 gold) in men’s and women’s tennis since it returned as a full medal sport in 1988, more than any other nation.

Venus Williams and Serena Williams are the most decorated U.S. Olympic tennis champions capturing four Olympic gold medals apiece.

Venus Williams swept Olympic gold in singles and doubles at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Serena Williams won gold medals in singles and doubles at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
