According to the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation, Rafael Nadal right now is officially slated to play in singles and both doubles events at the Rio Olympics in August.
Nadal will team with French Open winners Marc Lopez in men’s doubles and Garbine Muguruza in the mixed event.
Captain Conchita Martinez did say teams could get changed before the events begin. But as of now on the submitted list of participants for the Olympics Nadal is teamed with Muguruza.
Nadal, who withdrew from Wimbledon last week, is recovering from a wrist injury, so there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready.
The Rio Olympic tennis event begins on August 6.
The full Spanish Olympic tennis team:
Carla Suarez Navarro
Roberto Bautista Agut
Albert Ramos Vinolas
Anabel Medina Garrigues
Arantxa Parra Santonja
