Serena Williams announced on Sunday that she wouldn’t be playing in this summer’s Tokyo Olympics.

The American tennis star is a four-time Olympic gold medalist, capturing the singles title in the London games and three doubles titles with her sister Venus Williams.

“I’m actually not on the Olympic list, not that I’m aware of,” said Williams during a press conference at Wimbledon.

When asked to elaborate on her decision to forgo the summer games, Williams declined to comment further. “There’s a lot of reasons that I made my Olympic decision and I don’t feel like going into them today,” Williams said, adding, “Maybe another day-Sorry.”
