Following the decision that the Tokyo Olympics will be held in the Tokyo metropolitan area with no spectators, Australian tennis players who were scheduled to participate said, "It is unacceptable to play in a stadium without spectators." As a result, it was revealed that he would give up his participation.

Nick Kyrgios, a male tennis player, has announced that he will give up participating in the Tokyo Olympics.

I had decided to participate in the Olympics for the first time as a representative of Australia, but I posted on SNS that I decided not to participate in the Olympics.



"It wasn't an easy decision. It was my dream to go to the Olympics on behalf of the country, and I know that this opportunity may never come again, but I play in a stadium with no spectators. It is unacceptable to do it, and I want to spend the time I need to get in shape. ”He explained that he decided not to participate because of the unattended tournament and physical condition problems.



The 26-year-old Kyrgios is the 13th most talented player in the world ranking of singles, and has an original play style that entertains fans.

At the Wimbledon Championships in England since last month, he abstained in the third round due to an abdominal injury.



"It's a pity that Kyrgios doesn't join the national team, but we respect his decision," the Australian Olympic Committee told NHK.
