With only five days to go before play begins, the list of who is in and who is out of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games continues to change.

The U.S. Olympic team on the men's side is looking rather sparse. The final blow came this past weekend when defending champions Bob and Mike Bryan announced they were opting out of the Olympics due to health concerns. Adding them to the long list of players not going, and this year's Games are lining up for defending champion Andy Murray, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal. The women's draw will suffering without top stars in Azarenka, Sharapova and Halep, but the presence of the Williams sisters should definitely make the Olympics entertaining.
