Because Fed had already done it twice in 2004 and 2008, it was really time for someone else

Fed didn't do that "for Stan" as anyway he has no power on the Olympic Committee's decisions, but he was perfectly right to say that they could give this honor to someone else for once

Besides, Fed having already done it twice, is more concerned about his concentration : he will need it fully in two-setter matches on grass in both singles and doubles, and also being a family-man.
