The combination of tennis for the Tokyo Olympics has been announced, and Naomi Osaka, who is ranked 2nd in the world, will face the 52nd Chinese player in the world in the first round of women's singles.
On the other hand, in the men's singles, Kei Nishikori will play against Andrey Rublev of the Russian Olympic Committee in 7th place in the world in the first round.
The combination lottery was held at "Ariake Tennis Forest" in Koto Ward, Tokyo.
As a result of the lottery, Osaka was decided to play against China's Zheng Saisai in the 52nd place in the world in the first round of women's singles.
The match record is 2 wins and 1 loss for Osaka, and most recently, Osaka won straight in the second round of the Australian Open last year.
It will be the first official match in about two months since Osaka abstained at the French Open in May.
In the men's singles, Nishikori, who is 69th in the world, will face Rublev, who is 7th in the world, against Rublev of the Russian Olympic Committee in the first round.
Rublev is a 23-year-old young player who is growing rapidly, having won five tours last year and making his first Top 10 in the world rankings.
Nishikori's match record is 1-0, but it was the last time he played in a tour tournament in the United States three years ago.
Tennis will begin on the 24th, the day after the opening of the Olympic Games.
