Heart decides as Federer confirms Tokyo Olympics participation

Federer will attempt to win a singles gold medal at the July 24-Aug 9 Games, the only major prize that the 20-time Grand Slam victor has yet to win.

"Every Olympic games has been very, very special to me", Federer said during the announcement.

Murray retained his title at Rio 2016, an event Federer missed because of injury.

"I've been debating with my team for a few weeks now, months actually, what I should do in the summer after Wimbledon and before the U.S. Open (in 2020)", Federer, who will turn 39 during the Games, added.

Federer is third in the world rankings, while Nadal and Djokovic won all four Grand Slams between them this year.

"I get that but I just feel at the Olympics it's next level".

The 20-time Positive Slam champion did decide a doubles gold alongside fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka at Beijing in 2008, but when he got to the London singles closing in 2012 he became as soon as hammered 2-6, 1-6, 4-6 by an impressed Andy Murray.

He has never won on the PGA Tour, but he was T6 at The Open Championship past year for his third top-10 in a major since 2018. Ranked 4th scoring average, 8th birdie average, 11th for both GIR and SG: Approach and 12th for SG: Tee to green last season.

Roger Federer has confirmed he will play at the 2020 Olympic Games, revealing his "heart decided" to compete again.

If Federer is going to play in the upcoming Olympics 2020 in Tokyo then it will be a treat to watch for all his fans.

"I just figured it was an organic place to do that", he said, "so I am very happy to announce it here".

Federer will need a wildcard to be eligible to play as he has not competed in the Davis Cup for Switzerland in this Olympic cycle.

Djokovic won the Japan Open earlier this month without dropping a set at Ariake Colosseum - the venue for the Olympic Games.

"I'll try to be ready for the Tokyo Olympics in great shape", the Serb told reporters.

"Last time I was injured and not in good condition". But I don't want to dream that far. I don't want to take pressure off myself, I can handle the pressure, it's not a problem - I just want to give it the best shot I have and see if I can make another medal.
