Guido Pella (62 °), who has just lost to Lukas Lacko (214th) in the first round of the ATP 500 in Halle, announced on his social networks that he will not be present at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
“Good morning everyone, I take advantage of this social network to communicate that after thinking about it for a long time with myself and with my team, I decided not to participate in the Tokyo Olympics this year. Undoubtedly this year has been very difficult for me in many aspects and knowing the demands that an Olympic Game requires, it is difficult for me to give my best for my country, which has always been what I liked to do the most. I wish the entire Argentine delegation the best of success. Thanks to all for being, I send you a big hug ” The Bahiense communicated on his Instagram account.
In addition to Pella, Federico Delbonis also declined his presentation in the contest as far as national tennis players are concerned. From the international arena, the most prominent ones who will not go will be: Rafael Nadal, Denis Shapovalov and Casper Ruud.
