I hope she's well enough to play

0 ( +5 / -5 )

No interviews, I assume?

4 ( +7 / -3 )

No questions, including what Japanese food she ate before her matches.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

Great!

0 ( +3 / -3 )

She won't drop out since it's not going to be played on clay. Interviews aren't mandatory at the Olympics either.

0 ( +4 / -4 )

Tokyo will properly show deference to her highness.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Interesting to see what will happen with the ban on activism on the games.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

What sushi does she like? Can she use chopsticks?

The hard hitting questions Japanese journalists ask

5 ( +7 / -2 )

How much you wanna bet the delicate "mental health" of this world-topping champion will miraculously improve just enough for her to fully participate at the Olympics? lol.

It's a Pandemic Miracle, by golly!

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Boooooo to her.

I see her going silver or bronze in the Olympics so long as she's sticks to her off court training and protocols....which she is doing now.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

She won't drop out since it's not going to be played on clay.

Never mind the fact that she also dropped out of her next planned tournament, which was on... wait for it... grass

Interviews aren't mandatory at the Olympics either.

If she plays at the Olympics, I feel like this is a much more likely reason than the fact that it's not on clay.
