The ITF announced the provisional entry list for the 2016 Olympic tennis competition starting August 3 in Rio.

Some of the top names in the sport will be there including defending gold medallist Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal who hopes to be healthy by then.

And Caroline Wozniacki also won her appeal to play, so she’ll also be there.

“It’s been a long wait BUT I am officially going to Rio!! #roadtorio rocking the Danish colors on court!! 🙌🏻🇩🇰🇩🇰” Wozniacki tweeted.

While the Dane will be there, this year, unlike the past, ranking points for the players will not.

A look at the teams in singles and doubles. Mixed will be determined just before the event.
