After winning Asian Games gold in Hangzhou, Rutuja Bhosale eyes the 2024 Paris Olympics quota

Riding on the success of the Hangzhou Asian Games, the star of Indian tennis, Rutuja Bhosale, is now aiming to secure a 2024 Paris Olympics quota and break into the top 200 to ensure more Grand Slam presence in her career.
after being felicitated by Punit Balan Group Chairman Punit Balan in the presence of Janhavi Dhariwal Balan, former captain of the Maharashtra Ranji cricket team, Rutuja’s husband Swapnil Gugale, and her mother upon her arrival in India. Rutuja said, “I have trained my eyes on the Paris Olympics. In tennis, one cannot book an Olympic quota despite winning at the Asian Games, like in other sports. I have to improve my ranking and make my way up from 320 to the top 200 to ensure a berth as well as secure entry into Grand Slams.”
Bhosale has made significant progress in her world ranking with assistance from PBG, resulting in a career-high ranking of 313 in singles. She has also clinched seven ITF titles in the last two years, including six in the doubles category.
She further said, “It was a proud moment for me and Rohan Bopanna to represent India and win an Asian Games gold medal in mixed doubles after 13 long years. I am thankful for all the help and support that has gone into making us stand at the podium.”
