Few surprises were expected in this list. The French Tennis Federation did not surprise more than reason in its announcement of the French teams for the next Olympic Games (July 23 – August 8) and Paralympics (August 24 – September 5) in Tokyo this summer. Among the men, Gaël Monfils will be the headliner of the France group, when the four best French will represent the chances of Bleus in the women.

The French number one, 17th in the world and in difficulty this season, will be supported by Ugo Humbert (2nd French, 25th worldwide), Jérémy Chardy (6th French, 61st worldwide) and Gilles Simon (10th French, 97th worldwide). The pair Nicolas Mahut – Pierre-Hugues Herbert will also be part of the adventure in Japan, but only for the doubles event. Chardy and Monfils will team up for the second French pair. Unsurprisingly, French number 4 Benoît Paire was not selected, as the FFT had announced several weeks ago.

Among the women, there will be even fewer surprises, since the four French women in the World Top 100 have been selected in singles and doubles. Alizé Cornet, Kristina Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia will defend the French colors as in Rio in 2016, and Fiona Ferro will also be traveling for the first time in her career. She will team up with Cornet in doubles, while “Kiki” and “Caro” will also be associated in this tournament, as in 2016. The French Paralympic tennis team will be present behind Stéphane Houdet, candidate flag bearer of the tricolor selection.
