Serena Williams and her coach Mouratoglou are motivated to go for the gold medal at the postponed Tokyo Olympics, even though they planned to get the awaited medal this year. Besides targeting the gold medal, Serena can enter the history books and become the first tennis player to win the Olympics in an odd year.

 

 
“She and I (Serena) were looking forward to striking gold again at this year’s Tokyo Olympics, but the goal has only been postponed to 2021… which gives us yet another motivation: become the first tennis player to win the Olympics on an odd year!” said Patrick Mouratoglou on Instagram.

Williams already has four gold medals, but only one of them was obtained in the singles draw, achieved during the 2012 London Summer Olympics. To get on the top place of the podium, Serena beat Caroline Wozniacki, Victoria Azarenka and, finally, Maria Sharapova with a smashing 6/0 6/1.

“The 2012 London Olympics were just the second tournament of our collaboration with Serena, the second played at Wimbledon — and the second she won both in singles and doubles. Eight years later, it remains one of my favourite memories with her also because she has played some of the best tennis of her career”.

pointed out Mouratoglou. However, it is to be noted that even though Serena Williams manages to obtain the gold medal in 2021, the Olympics will wear the name Tokyo Olympics 2020, as per the International Olympic Committee’s decision.

Even Serena Williams, in the face of the coronavirus emergency, has chosen the path of self-isolation and invites everyone to stay at home. Meanwhile, pending a general decision by the WTA, the organizers of the Stuttgart tournament have announced their cancellation.

The “Porsche Tennis Grand Prix” was due to start on April 20th. Earning almost $29 million in prize money and endorsements, Williams was the highest paid female athlete in 2016. She repeated this feat in 2017 when she was the only woman on Forbes’ list of the 100 highest paid athletes with $27 million in prize money and endorsements.

She has won the ‘Laureus Sportswoman of the Year’ award four times (2003, 2010, 2016, 2018). In 2019, she was ranked 63rd in Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Athletes list. “It’s so important to believe in yourself.

In my job, I look different, and that kind of put me on this path of being different. You have a lot to say and to design, and you should just be yourself” – the 23-time Grand Slam champion told in an interview to PEOPLE magazine.

“We have to somehow figure out how to live on this planet and not destroy it, so this really speaks to me personally. It has to be incorporated into design as well because fashion is a really big part of a lot of bad things that are happening and it’s just the honest truth.

It’s about how do you create those collections that are more sustainable and takes less pressure from what we do” – she added. Williams boasts of a huge fan following around the world, and her words will surely have a huge impact.
