Serena Williams is not on the Olympic Tennis List Serena Williams announced that she would not be part of the USA’s Olympic tennis team. While speaking to reporters, she said, “I’m actually not on the Olympics list, not that I’m aware of. And if so, then I shouldn’t be on it. There’s a lot of reasons that I made my Olympic decision. I don’t really want to … I don’t feel like going into them today. Maybe another day. Sorry.” She continued by adding, “In the past, it’s been a wonderful place for me, but I really haven’t thought about it, so I’m going to keep not thinking about it.” Why do you think Serena isn’t going to the Olympics?
