Karen Khachanov to compete in the 2024 Olympic Games


The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has announced that all Russian tennis players are allowed to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris. This decision is a significant step towards the participation of Russian athletes in prestigious international competitions, despite the complex political situation and various sanctions imposed on Russian sports.

One of the leading tennis players who may represent Russia at the upcoming Olympics is Karen Khachanov.

The 28-year-old tennis player of Armenian descent already competed in the 2020 Olympic Games and won a silver medal, losing to Alexander Zverev in the final.

The head coach of the Russian national tennis team, Shamil Tarpischev, will be responsible for the final selection of the team. His experience and authority in the tennis world play a crucial role in the preparation and selection of athletes. Tarpischev has been leading the Russian team for many years and has repeatedly brought the team to success on the international stage.

Although the ITF has already given the “green light” for Russian tennis players to participate, the final decision on each athlete will be made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Currently, there have been no complaints against Russian tennis players, which gives hope for their participation in the games.

  • Daniil Medvedev
  • Andrey Rublev
  • Karen Khachanov
  • Roman Safiullin
  • Daria Kasatkina
