The 2020 Tokyo Olympics would feature numerous sports, while tennis would be one of them to watch out for. Although the sport during the event this year would lack some prominent stars, it would still have some top stars.

As far as female tennis is concerned, local favourite Naomi Osaka would be the top draw. Furthermore, she would be fresh heading onto the event, skipping the French Open and the ongoing Wimbledon.

Ahead of the Games, the International Olympic Committee released a video featuring Osaka, along with legendary former Olympian and sprinter Usain Bolt. Launched as a part of the "Stronger Together" campaign, the video aims at delivering hope, unity and inspiration to the global audience. Andre Degrasse, Yusra Mardini, Nyjah Huston and Tony Hawk also featured in the video.

"People might think I'm quiet. Different. That I don't fit the box of what an Olympian should be. But, I'm proof that the definition is bigger than people think," she said in the video.

"I want to inspire the girls out there watching right now. The ones that some people think are too different. Too quiet. Too something. And if we don't fit that expectation of what people think we're supposed to be, good! That just means we're the ones who get to change it," she added.
