Swiss maestro Roger Federer has affirmed that he’ll be returning at the Olympics games in 2021. He is a two-time Olympic medal holder with a gold in 2008 Beijing and a silver at 2012 London. Since January, he hasn’t been out of action since his loss against Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open. The 38-year-old had been struggling with his physical conditions. He had arthroscopic surgeries twice because of his joints.
Federer said, “I had two surgeries and I can’t hit at the moment, but I’m very confident I will be totally ready for 2021. I do miss playing in front of the fans, no doubt. Now, I think if tennis comes back we know it won’t be in a normal way where we can have full crowds yet,” as reported by UBITENNIS.
Not just Olympics, he is also focusing on big a title which is of course Wimbledon. “Of course I miss Wimbledon, of course, I would like to be there currently playing on Centre Court for a place in the second week. Clearly, one of my big goals, and that’s why I do recovery work every day and work so hard, and why I’m preparing for a 20-week physical preparation block this year, is because I hope to play at Wimbledon next year.” Federer added.
