The ITF, or the International Tennis Federation, have released a revised list of female players who will be part of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, due to begin on the 6th of August. Given that there have been a number of high-profile withdrawals from the tournament, spectators will now see a handful of players granted a singles berth to Rio.

2015 Rogers Cup champion Belinda Bencic, who had been due to headline Team Switzerland’s women’s singles attack at Rio 2016, withdrew from the tournament last week, announcing that a previously-sustained wrist injury had not yet healed.
