Rafael Nadal is on the final entry list for the Rio Olympics. The 14-time major champion hasn't played since pulling out of the French Open
Rafael Nadal is on the final entry list for the Rio Olympics. The 14-time major champion hasn't played since pulling out of the French Open because of an injured left wrist and needed the International Tennis Federation's Olympic Committee to approve his appeal because he hasn't played Davis Cup.
Nadal won the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games. There were no major surprises on the list released Friday by the ITF, which includes Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Roger Federer on the men's side and Serena Williams, Angelique Kerber and Garbine Muguruza for the women.
Just as the roster was about to be announced, sixth-ranked Victoria Azarenka revealed she was pregnant and will miss the rest of the season, though her name was on the Olympic list.
