Serena Williams Will Play U.S. Open In Spite Of Coronavirus

Serena Williams is skipping this summer season’s Olympic Games.

Speaking at a video interview before the start of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships on Sunday, June 27, the 39-year-old tennis star and 23-time grand slam champion said she will not participate in the upcoming event in Tokyo.

“I’m actually not on the Olympic list,” Serena said, “not that I’m conscious of. And if so, then I shouldn’t be on it.”

Serena did not define why she will not be completing in the Tokyo Olympics. “There’s a great deal of factors that I made my Olympic decision,” she stated, according to CNN. “I don’t really want to … I don’t feel like going into them today. Possibly another day. Sorry.”

Serena won 4 gold medals between songs and doubles at four past Olympic Games– in 2000, 2008, 2012 and 2016.

“In the past it’s [Olympics] been a terrific place for me,” she told reporters, “however I actually haven’t considered it, so I’m going to keep not thinking of it.”
