Naomi Osaka would happily quarantine to play at Tokyo Olympics; Novak Djokovic excited for Australian Open fans

by A.P.

Naomi Osaka says she would be willing to undergo two more weeks of quarantine to play at the Tokyo Olympics.

Two days after completing 14 days of isolation in Adelaide ahead of the Australian Open, the US Open champion said she would be prepared to do it all again to play in the Olympics on home soil this summer.

Amid speculation that the Games could be cancelled due to the pandemic, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said that Japan remained determined to stage the Olympics.

Although plans are changing daily, Tokyo organisers are not currently considering wholesale quarantine for the 11,000 athletes taking part in the Games.
