Here is a news that will displease the purists. The five-set final will not return to the Paris 2024 Olympics. Since the return of tennis to the Olympics in 1988, each final was played to the best of five sets. The authorities had decided to change by going back to the best of three sets during the 2020 Olympics. And contrary to an announcement made on the Twitter of Paris 2024, this rule should be kept. In Paris 2024, the final will be played again in the best of three sets. The ITF confirmed it to Tennis Actu by mail. The show should still be there in the capital.
As a reminder, the tennis tournament of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games from July 27 to August 4 will take place at Roland-Garros. During these 10 days of competition on the Parisian clay court, the titles of Alexander Zverev in the men’s category and Belinda Bencic in the women’s category will be at stake. It should be noted that tennis will not be the only sport to settle at the Porte d’Auteuil during these Games since boxing will also be present. For the Paralympic Games, the site will host tennis but also basketball and rugby handisport.
