Japanese who support the Games fear speaking out

  Japanese who support the Games fear speaking out Some Japanese - including athletes - are afraid to come forward and show support for the Olympics.The Tokyo Olympics, up until the pandemic, may have been an unlikely target. But with less than 50 days till the start of the event, the majority of the public say they want the Games to be cancelled or postponed again.

Who cares about Thiem ? Tokyo 2020 will be epic regardless. So much fun watching Olympics tennis , atleast to me. Thiem will probably be in a better position to medal in 2024 anyway - unlikely he's going to beat any of the top guys on Tokyo hardcourt. Paris will almost certainly be on clay, and Djokovic and Nadal will hopefully be competing in wheelchair singles at the Paralympics by then.

Thiems racket is pretty medium for weight range. My rackets are 345 strung and a sw of 367 so I'm pretty similar to thiem in weight of racket and sw No. His is 337 static and 345 sw. It's not hard to play with and I can whip it around fairly well. Yet you had everything then just as now: co-poly strings, good racquets, good designs, customization knowledge, Babolats etc. But it took some time for the tennis community to learn the possibilities and how they can advance the game through marriage of technique, technology and setups (most important: what possibilities co-poly strings have opened

NOT thinking about shape, Austrian Dominic Thiem announced this Thursday on social networks its package for the Tokyo Olympics.

In the space of half a day, the Tokyo Olympic tournament has just lost two of its potential five best players! After the No. 3 World Rafael Nadal ( who also stated for Wmbledon ), it is the No. 5 Dominic Thiem who announced on his social networks that he would not play the Tokyo Olympics. "I have a sad news to share with you all. After discussing with my team and analyzed the situation, I made the very difficult decision not to participate in the Tokyo Olympics. For me, as for all athletes, participate in the Olympic Games and represent my country is a huge honor and that makes this decision even more difficult. However, the year 2021 did not start as planned and I do not feel able to be at my best level in Tokyo. My goal is to work hard in the coming weeks, to give the best of myself in Wimbledon and continue to train to hope to defend my title at the US Open. I am young and I hope to play for Austria at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Hi Everybody, I have some Sad News to Share with you all. After Talking with My Team and Analyzing The situation I Have Taken The Very Difficult Difference to Withdraw from Competing in the Tokyo Olympics.

The best tennis courts in Tokyo to go and have a hit. See our list of public and private courts, and recommendations for classes and clubs. A number of the city’s parks have their own public tennis courts which are open to anyone, but they’re not the most convenient option for those who are only in town for a short period. Public tennis courts are easily the cheapest option, but they do involve a little extra legwork when it comes booking them.

Only 9 wins for Thiem in 2021 The 27 year old player has never played the Olympic Games and will continue again this year. A year that is for the moment missed, with an elimination in the round of a final at the Open of Australia and from the first round in Roland-Garros, no concluded finals and only 9 victories for 8 defeats in 2021. Austrian had entrusted a few weeks ago that he was hurting this pandemic period and "bubbles" to respect in the world of tennis, especially after the euphoria of his first win in Grand Slam. He now hopes to find the morale, and his level of play, with Wimbledon in less than two weeks and especially the US Open, which he had won the past season and where he wishes to shine again. With this package, it is in any case a beautiful medal chance flying for Austria. A country that shines at the winter Olympics (232 medals) but much less during the summer Olympics (87 in total, one in Rio in 2016, sailing).
