The long-standing world tennis ranking first Roger Federer has not yet decided whether he will start the Olympics in Tokyo. This was said by the 39-year-old Swiss in London, two days before the start of the Grand Slam tournament in Wimbledon.
Whether he plays well or badly with the grass classic has an influence, as does his age and the fitness level. My feeling is still that I would like to play Olympia,”said Federer, but asked for patience. In a few weeks we will know more.”The feather growing old on the eighth of August – the end of the games in Tokyo – 40 years old is already a double Olympic winner and got silver in one.
After his failed general rehearsal with the early off at the tournament in hall, featherer showed himself again confident for Wimbledon.”After his failed general rehearsal with the early off at the tournament in hall I know I have a chance here. I feel mentally strong,”said Federer, who, in his own words, has trained well and meets Adrian Mannarino in the first round. After two knee operations a few weeks ago, he had left the French Open before the eighth finals to save himself.
Only the eighth-time Wimbledon winner had to get used to life in the Corona bubble. Unlike usual, because of the Corona pandemic, the professionals do not live in houses near the facility, but commute between hotel and tennis courts. It feels totally different than in the 20’s when I come here,”said the world ranking eighth. But he feels privileged to play after his injury and in view of the pandemic in Wimbledon.
