'So much to think about' - Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka unsure about playing at Tokyo Olympic Games
The Tokyo Olympics is set to go ahead this summer after being postponed last year, but Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka have both expressed doubts about the event. Williams, 39, says she needs to "figure out" her next moves while Osaka is unsure if the Games should go ahead in her home country of Japan during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"I've never played an Olympic event, so it's not like I would have anything to compare it to,” added Osaka.
“I would feel, of course, definitely a bit sad, but at the end of the day, it's an honour to play in the Olympics in the first place and if that's what keeps people healthy, then I'm up for [playing behind closed doors]."
