The All India Tennis Association (AITA) on Thursday confirmed that Rohan Bopanna will pair with N Sriram Balaji in the men's doubles event at the Paris Olympics 2024.

At 44, Bopanna has chosen Balaji as his partner, marking a significant attempt to clinch an Olympic medal. AITA conveyed their excitement about the duo's qualification, emphasizing it as a milestone for Indian tennis.

The selection committee, headed by former Davis Cup Captain Nandan Bal, made the decision.
