Kei Nishikori, the Japanese tennis veteran, is worried about the upcoming Olympics which will take place in Japan.
The Tokyo Olympics was supposed to be held last year but because of the rise in the COVID-19 cases in Japan and throughout the world, resulting the event to be postponed to 2021.
The Olympics are set to begin on June 23 of this year. However, there has been a sudden rise in coronavirus cases throughout the world. Therefore, many are doubtful about hasting the event this year in Tokyo.
Kei Nishikori shared his views on the event, “This is not like 100 people like [we have at] these tournaments. It’s 10,000 people in an Olympic Village. I don’t think it’s easy, especially with what’s happening right now in Japan; it’s not doing good.”
“You can make a good bubble and maybe you can do it. There is some risk too. What happens if there are 100 cases in the Village? Or it can be thousands,” the Japanese pro further added to his statement.
With the sudden rise in the COVID cases, the world has again gone into a chaotic state. Therefore, many countries have declared lockdown and even rejected to host many major tournaments. However, Japan is eager to host the prestigious event this time. As a result, the Japanese government declared to close the country for three months, thus the conditions will be stable to host the Olympics.

The 31-year-old Nishikori is currently playing at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. He faced Fabio Fognini in the first round and won with a score of 6-3, 6-4. The Jap further won the next round without even facing Pablo Carreno Busta, as the Spaniard walked over from the tournament.
