The news that had been in the air for a few days is now official. Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal will play doubles together at the Paris 2024 Olympics. The official announcement was made by Spanish national team coach David Ferrer.

Needless to stress the great value of the doubles formed by the newly crowned Roland Garros champion and the 14-time winner in Paris who will go on court to try to win the Olympic gold medal. Meanwhile, if Nadal will skip the grass season and focus on the OIympics, the same is not true for Alcaraz.

Let's see what the world No. 2's approach to the Olympic tournament will be like. What are the upcoming tournaments that will see Carlos Alcaraz on the court? The three-time Slam champion after winning Roland Garros last Sunday is not involved in any tournament this week but from next week he will already be back on the court.

Wimbledon is just around the corner, it is not too far away and it is necessary not to give room for too much celebration of the Paris success but to prepare for the grass season. Carlos Alcaraz's head is already projected toward London where he will try to make an encore of last year's success won in the final over Novak Djokovic.

In a recent interview with L’Equipe, former tennis star Mats Wilander opened up on Carlos Alcaraz’s recent triumph in Paris: “He doesn’t systematically make the best choice but the arsenal is there, at his disposal. The icing on the cake? He smiles on the field! He is a perfect ambassador.”

The Spanish tennis player will return to the court next week for the ATP 500 of the Queen's historic preparatory event for Wimbledon. He will be the number 1 seed of the tournament because the same week, Jannik Sinner, number 1 in the world will lead the seeding of the 500 of Halle.

Of course after the Queen's another week without tournaments and then he will play Wimbledon which this year is scheduled from Monday 1 July to Sunday 14 July. Here Alcaraz's program will be very much linked to how things go in the third Slam of the season.
