The 39-year-old Serena Williams who is the joint most successful Olympian in tennis history alongside sister Venus having won one gold medal in singles and three in doubles is yet to decide whether to play in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
But the decision might be due to the coronavirus protocol restricting international visitors to the Games, including family members of athletes, could result in Williams whose daughter Olympia who is three years choose not to be part of.
I haven’t really thought much about that,” she said. “That’s a really good question. I haven’t spent 24 hours without her, so that kind of answers the question itself. We’re best friends.
“I have really been taking it one day at a time to a fault, and I definitely need to figure out my next moves.”
Williams, though, has no complaints about being compelled to stay in a hotel in the centre of London for Wimbledon rather than in a private house near to the All England Club.
She said: “I feel like it will be a good experience still. Thank goodness that I have experienced it before so I can kind of be ready for it.
