Serena’s keeping mum about reasons for missing Tokyo Olympics

Serena Williams has confirmed that she will not be going to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics this summer.

Williams confirmed her decision not to participate in this summer's event at a press conference ahead of Wimbledon but did not give any explanation.

“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.”
