With COVID-19 threatening the delayed Tokyo Olympics this summer, Rafael Nadal admitted on Tuesday he has doubts about the viability of the massive event.

The second seed bidding for a 10th trophy this week at the Rome Masters spelled out his concerns, adding that he will come to his personal decision over the coming weeks.

“Honestly, I cannot give a clear answer because I do not know,” he said.

“In a normal world, for no reason would I miss the Olympics, of course. Everyone knows how important this competition is to me. 

“In these circumstances, however, it is not clear to me. We will see what happens in the next few months,”

The Spaniard added: “I need to organise my schedule. Normally I know it from January 1 to the end of the season, but this year is different, we need to be flexible and adapt to what is happening ”.
