Collins, 30, who has said it will be her final season on the tour, won two titles this year in Miami and Charleston. The 2022 Australian Open runner-up also reached the Strasbourg final in May before exiting in the second round at the French Open, where her best finish was the 2020 quarter-finals.

Doubles player Desirae Krawczyk will team with Collins at the Paris Games. Collins and Krawczyk won a doubles title in Charleston last year. Krawczyk is a four-time Grand Slam mixed doubles champion.

Navarro reached the fourth round at Roland Garros at number 17 in his career.

Among the men, Fritz is the highest-ranked American at No. 12, followed by Paul at No. 13. Eubanks is 44th and Giron 53rd.

Paul and Giron took part in the Tokyo Games.

The US is also taking 40-year-old Rajeev Ram to his third Olympics. He will be paired with Austin Krajicek in doubles. Fritz and Paul also join forces in doubles.

Ram, who has four major doubles titles to his name, won the silver medal in mixed doubles with Venus Williams at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.

The USTA said it will announce a mixed doubles team for Paris at a later date.
