Osaka, Djokovic, Nadal keen to be at Olympics

Osaka, Djokovic, Nadal keen to be at Olympics”

Naomi is always quite careful in her scheduling and the Olympics Games in Tokyo would definitely be a big priority in her calendar.

But, more than the athletes and herself, the 3-time Grand Slam champion is concerned about the people of Japan. I think her team, everybody around her, has a pretty good handle on what is the amount she needs to play.

"Under the circumstances, I'm not sure this was a true spirit of partnership - the International Olympic Committee just rolled on all their TOP (Worldwide Partner) contracts for the year".

"Many of them also sold their old apartment to take out a loan for the new one", lawyer Hironobu Todoroki told AFP. My concern would be the general safety of everyone else because you're opening the country.

'I will stay in my room for two weeks to play the Olympics, ' said Osaka, who lives in Florida.

World number two Simona Halep of Romania made a decision to withdraw from Rio 2016 because of concerns over the Zika virus, but she is hoping to star at Tokyo 2020 despite the global health crisis.

'Combining our tour with another 15 days of quarantine to play Olympics, ' he said.

He too is keen to be in Tokyo.

"I think I get distracted by the crowd sometimes because I want to show off a little bit, so I do some insane shots", she said.

Although plans are changing daily, Tokyo organisers are not now considering wholesale quarantine for the 11 000 athletes taking part in the Games.

'It's going to be a lot of people obviously. Other world championships are scheduled from February to July 2021 including cycling, baseball, sailing, triathlon, fencing, sailing, gymnastics, surfing, archery, modern pentathlon, table tennis and canoeing. It's obviously not up to me to talk about organisation or what can be done, should be done, what will be done'.

"I hope that the Olympics really will happen, for sure", said Kvitová, as reported by Agence France-Presse. She won women's singles bronze medal in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The buildings, created to house more than 10,000 Olympic athletes and officials, will be transformed into thousands of luxury bay side condos after this summer's Games.

Amid speculation that the Games could be cancelled due to the pandemic, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Friday that Japan remained determined to stage the Olympics, which had to be rescheduled previous year.
