Simona Halep is dreaming of Olympic glory in Tokyo, but she has something else in mind to make it even more special.
The world number one has competed in the games before, but she hopes to bear the flag for her beloved Romania in 2020.
“I played in London and it was very beautiful,” said Halep.”It was emotional and very different than what we do every day.
“Tennis is a single sport, but when I played the Olympics it was totally different.
“There were emotions that I had never felt before, and I hope to play much better than what I did in London.
“My main goal in Tokyo is obviously a medal, it does not matter which one.
“I will do my best to be in Tokyo and win.
“But I want to stay something more, I hope to be flag-bearer for Romania.
“It would be a big joy for me.
“I think, for every athlete, it’s a big achievement to represent your country.
“I hope to play with Horia Tecau in doubles.”
