Serena Williams will not compete at Tokyo Olympic Games

Serena Williams has confirmed she will not compete at the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.

Last month, Williams had expressed doubts about her participation over existing coronavirus travel restrictions and whether it would prevent her from bringing her three-year-old daughter.

The 39-year-old confirmed her decision not to take part in the Games ahead of Wimbledon, which begins on Monday.

I’m actually not on the Olympic list, so… Not that I’m aware of. If so, then I shouldn’t be on it,” Williams said.

“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.”

“I have not thought about it. In the past it’s been a wonderful place for me. I really haven’t thought about it, so I’m going to keep not thinking about it.”
