Tokyo Olympics: More Withdrawals from Tennis, 17-years-old Coco Gauff pulls out due to Covid-19

Tokyo Olympics: More bad news for Tennis fans in Tokyo and around the world as the 17-years-old Coco Gauff also joins from the Tokyo Games.

The sole reason behind so many withdrawals is the busy schedule due to French Open and Wimbledon along with ATP and WTA tours which are coupled with the quarantine amid the COVID-19 situation in Japan.

Coco Gauff has tested positive for Covid-19. She lost to Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-4 on Centre Court in the fourth round at Wimbledon earlier this month. It was the second time she had lost at that stage after her breakthrough run at the All England Club in 2019.

Gauff is No. 25 in the WTA rankings.

We were saddened to learn that Coco Gauff has tested positive for COVID-19 and will therefore be unable to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games,” the U.S. Tennis Association said in a statement.

We wish her the best as she deals with this unfortunate situation and hopes to see her back on the courts very soon. We know Coco will join all of us in rooting on the other Team USA members who will be traveling to Japan and competing in the coming days.
