(Olympic tennis news) Facing the risk of the Olympic 2020 Tokyo being delayed due to the Corona Virus (Covid-19) pandemic, Roger Federer’s fan – a member of the Canadian sports delegation – could not hide his feelings of disappointment.
The world in general and the village, in particular, are engulfed in a fear called Corona Virus (Covid-19).
Facing the complicated movements of this pandemic, a series of events and major tournaments have been postponed, not even scheduled to return.
Recently the European football championship Euro scheduled to be held in the summer of 2020 has to be rescheduled to 2021. Olympic tennis 2020 – the largest sports festival in the world can also suffer the same fate.
Federer Fans worried there was no chance to meet Federer Olympic 2020 Tokyo due to the risk of being delayed
Those in the course, of course, do not want this to happen, for example, Janice Drover – a medical team member of the Canadian sports delegation is about to attend the Olympics 2020 games. The female doctor has participated in many major events such as the Commonwealth Games, the Pan American Games but has never breathed the Olympic atmosphere.
In an interview with Tennis USA, Janice Drover admitted she was very excited about the prospect of attending the Olympics in Tokyo from 24/7 to 5/8. Thanks to that, she can meet sports idols like Bianca Andreescu (the No. 1 Canadian female player, 6th in the world) and especially the legendary Roger Federer:
“At the Olympic tennis, we will see Federer or Andreescu play. The players have worked very hard with the desire to be part of this great event.”
Won the ATP title beyond the age of 30
After winning the US Open 2019, Nadal set a record as the first player in history to win up to 5 Grand Slams in singles at the age of 30 onwards. Earlier, Nadal also won four such noble titles when in his 30s like Ken Rosewall, Rod Laver, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic. In addition, the Spanish tennis player also has 16 titles of ATP.
However, Nadal’s number 16 is much lower than the legendary Rod Laver. Specifically, after turning 30 in the first season in the Open Era (1968), the former Australian tennis player won 47 titles, including a Grand Slam in 1969.
With 36 titles in his 30s, “Express train” Federer is the second on the list. Despite having just undergone knee surgery, the Swiss tennis player is likely to return sooner than expected to prepare for the pitching season.
In the last 6/7 seasons, Federer has remained one of the top players in the world and continues to fight for the highest title in the Olympic tennis industry even though he is 39 years old.
Federer will turn 39 when attending the Olympic 2020. “Express train” has participated in the Olympics four times (2000, 2004, 2008, 2012) and is racing against time to recover from a knee injury and to be in Tokyo.
Previously, the Olympic had been canceled three times in 1916, 1940 and 1944 because of the war. According to Janice Drover, what she and everyone can do to prevent the world’s biggest sports festival from getting into the “broken track” of the past is pray: “Right now, we can only pray, wash your hands clean and hope the disaster is over soon. “
Federer hungry for trophies in 2020 – including Olympic 2020 gold
The Olympics held in Tokyo have cost billions of dollars, so the host nation of Japan is determined not to put in the effort to prepare for years to “pour into the sea”. At a private meeting with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) last week, a member of the Organization Board confirmed that the Olympic 2020 are still going as planned. Even side activities such as torch relay, opening and closing ceremonies were not canceled.
To date, Japan has recorded more than 800 cases positive for Corona Virus (Covid-19). In the worst case, the IOC and the Japanese sports leader stubbornly organize when the pandemic has not shown signs of subsiding, the Olympic tennis– with hundreds of thousands of athletes, coaches from 137 countries participating – can become “outbreaks”, a true disaster of humanity.
