Simona Halep acknowledged that the most important goal of her career is to obtain a medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, where she will perform both singles and doubles and mixed doubles, along with Irina Begu and Horia Tecău, respectively.
One of the most opponents for the Romanian team at the Olympic Games, at least in the mixed doubles event, could be Switzerland. Belinda Bencic, the eighth position in the WTA hierarchy, admitted that she would like to play, in Tokyo, with Roger Federer.

“It would be great to play with Roger Federer, I’ve always wanted that. It is an uncertain situation now, we have to wait and see what needs to be done “, said Belinda Bencic, according to Tenniscircus.
The next edition of the Olympic Games was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic for one year. The Tokyo event will take place in the summer of 2021.
The professional tennis circuit is currently suspended until the beginning of August. If the coronavirus situation improves, the first official post-pandemic tournaments will be held in Karslruhe, for the WTA circuit, while men’s tennis will resume in Cincinnati.
