Serena Williams Announces She Will Not Participate In The 2021 Tokyo Olympics: I’m Not Thinking About It
The 2021 Tokyo Olympics will host an array of great athletes this summer, but Serena Williams will not be one of them.
Yesterday (Sunday, June 27th), Serena Williams spoke with reporters about the 2021 Wimbledon Championship, which began today (Monday, June 28th). However, she also took the time to address the upcoming Tokyo Olympics–and how she will not be playing at the event. Serena Williams said:
“I’m actually not on the Olympic list… not that I’m aware of. And if so, then I shouldn’t be on it.”
As for her reasoning, she offered a vague explanation, saying:
“There’s a lot of reasons that I made my Olympic decision. I don’t really want to… I don’t feel like going into them today. Maybe another day. Sorry.”
“In the past [the Olympics have] been a wonderful place for me, but I really haven’t thought about it, so I’m going to keep not thinking about it.”
