Paris Olympics: Nadal and Alcaraz to pair up for doubles

Alcaraz won his third Grand Slam on the streets of Paris on Sunday and is well-acquainted with the clay surface, while Nadal has won 14 of his 22 majors at Roland Garros.

Both have become fan favourites in France and spectators will be flocking in their masses to see them after it was confirmed they will pair up to represent Spain at the Olympics.

National team coach David Ferrer said: “One pair, which I think everyone knows and was hoping for, is Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal.

“Rafa and Carlos will be playing together in Paris.”

Alcaraz will be making his debut at the games but will have plenty of experience alongside him for the doubles tournament.

Nadal won Olympic gold at Beijing in 2008 and will likely be featuring for the last time in Paris.

His early exit from the French Open has further heightened belief that the legendary sportsman will retire at the end of the year.
