Entry into the mixed doubles is based on each pair’s combined ranking.

The mixed doubles event is making a return to the Olympics as a medal sport for the first time since Paris 1924. The event was also contested at Mexico 1968, but at that Olympics tennis was only an exhibition sport and wasn't re-intoduced as a medal sport until Seoul 1988.
