Federer to decide on Tokyo Games after Wimbledon

Roger Federer appeared at a press conference this Saturday before the start of Wimbledon. The 39-year-old Swiss wants to be in the two big events of the summer.


Roger Federer confirmed that he wants to go to the Tokyo Olympics, but will decide after Wimbledon based on his tournament result. The Swiss, who already missed the Rio de Janeiro Games, then due to injury, left his participation in the air at the expense of what happens at Wimbledon, where he will compete again two years after the final he lost against Serbian Novak Djokovic , in which he had two match points.

"We will decide, my team and I, after Wimbledon, because it is going to have an impact on me, it depends on whether I play well or badly. My feeling is that I would like to go, but I will know in a few weeks," Federer said in the press conference prior to the start of the third Grand Slam. The Helvetian enters this tournament with only five victories this season, three of them at Roland Garros and one on grass, at the Halle tournament, where he came out early in a bad match against Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime.

"In that game I had a moment when I was not happy with how I was playing. Halle's not going to happen here. I feel much better, that was like when I was junior and I was angry and I didn't see anything positive. I have to to stay with the good of all these weeks and that I can be at Wimbledon again, see how things are going. I have to be mentally strong, not like in Halle, "said the Swiss. Federer, eight times champion at the All England Club, will debut this Tuesday against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
