Sania Mirza & Ankita Raina
Sania Mirza and Ankita Raina are all set to represent India in the women’s doubles event at the Olympics. Sania Mirza will become the first female athlete to represent India at four Olympics, while Ankita Raina will make her Olympic debut.
Sania Mirza had protected her rankings, so she chose Ankita Raina, and they got the official entry into the tournament.
Sania Mirza teamed up with Sunith Rao in Beijing in 2008, Rushmi Chakravathi in London in 2012, Prarthana Thombare in Rio 2016, and Ankita Raina will be her fourth other partner on the straight.

The world No. 144, Sumit Nagal, has made it to the singles draw of the Tokyo Olympics at the very last minute. None of the Indian singles players had qualified directly for the Olympics, but Nagal was lucky on two accounts.
- 1st – India has access to the Olympics after several admissions by the top players.
- 2nd – Had he not been injured Yuki Bhambri would have been awarded entry for the Olympics through his protected position of 127 on ATP charts – but as Bhambri is injured Nagal will represent India at the Olympics despite being on the 144th place on ATP charts.
