After Dominic Thiem, Rafael Nadal, and Simona Halep, Serena Williams is another big name in tennis who has decided to skip Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The 23-times Grand Slam Singles Champion revealed her decision on Sunday during a Pre-Wimbledon Press Conference.
Serena Williams is once again prepared to equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam Titles. She will face Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich in her first-round match at the grass-court Grand Slam on July 29.
I’m actually not on the Olympic list not that I’m aware of. If so, then I shouldn’t be on it. There’s a lot of reasons that I made my Olympic decision. I don’t feel like going into them today. Maybe another day. Sorry.Serena Williams Spoke at a Pre-Wimbledon Press Conference
With less than a month to go before the 2021 Olympics, protesting in various parts of Tokyo remains skeptical of the fact that the Games are not safe due to COVID concerns.
Protests were recently held in front of the Tokyo Metropolitan Building and the organizing committee’s headquarters, which ranged from major metro stations to well-known public places in Japan. Protests have grown in intensity, particularly since two Ugandan nationals tested positive for coronavirus after arriving in Japan a few days ago.
