Wozniacki handed Rio place, Nadal made to wait


Caroline Wozniacki is set to represent Denmark at the 2016 Olympics, but Rafael Nadal faces a wait to learn whether he will be eligible to play in Rio.

Wozniacki launched an appeal with the International Tennis Federation (ITF) after it was ruled she could not participate at the Olympics due to of a lack of Fed Cup appearances.

In order to play at the Olympics, the WTA clarifies that a "a player must be part of the final Fed Cup team at the time of the draw and be present at the tie a minimum of three times in the four-year Olympic cycle. One of those ties must occur in either 2015 or 2016."

Wozniacki has only played twice in the Fed Cup since London 2012, with an ankle injury ruling her out of Denmark's clash with Egypt in April.

However, the world number 45 - who was beaten in the first round at Wimbledon on Tuesday - won her appeal and has been named on the ITF's provisional list of participants for Rio.

Nadal is also on the provisional list, although the ITF say the participation of the Spaniard is "subject to July Davis Cup participation or an ITF Olympic Committee appeal".

Former world number one Nadal has only represented Spain twice in the Davis Cup since the last Olympics.
