    Safety concerns to keep Shapovalov from Olympic tennis

    MONTREAL (AFP) – World number 12 Denis Shapovalov said on Monday that he will not play tennis for Canada at the Tokyo Olympics, citing safety issues even as COVID-19 remains a global concern.

    Shapovalov did not specify the deadly coronavirus in a tweet announcing his decision.

    “Hey everyone, after careful consideration I wanted to let you know that I will not be participating in the Olympics this year,” Shapovalov said. “Representing Canada means the world to me, but due to the current situation my team and I have decided this is the best decision for everyone’s safety.”
