Unexpected and surprising correction made by the organization of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2021 in the order of play on the first day of competition, relegating Naomi osaka to play on Sunday instead of opening center court on Saturday. Rumors indicate that this is so because it will be the Japanese tennis player who does one of the last relays of the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony, before the cauldron is lit. In an attempt to give Naomi time to recover and not have to rush to the hotel, they have located Iga Swiatek opening the day.
