Serena Williams will not win a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. At a press conference at Wimbledon on Sunday, the 39-year-old tennis player told reporters that she would not participate in the next Olympic Games.
“I’m actually not on the Olympic list, not that I’m aware of. If so, then I shouldn’t be on it,” she said. “There are a lot of reasons that I made my Olympic decision. I don’t feel like going into them today, but maybe another day. Sorry.”
As for whether he thought about what it would be like to miss the game, Williams said: “I haven’t thought about it yet.”
“It has in the past been a wonderful place for me, but I really haven’t thought about it, so I’m going to keep not thinking about it,” she added.
Williams is a four-time Olympic gold medalist. The most recent was in 2012, when he won both singles and doubles championships. The latter fought alongside her sister Venus Williams, who had previously played with. Ella has won two championships together. Although he missed the Olympics, Williams is preparing for Wimbledon, where he ranks sixth after Naomi in Osaka decided not to compete due to ongoing mental health issues.
