Exclamation Federer's Main Goal Is (SINGLES) Olympic Gold 2012

You heard it here 1st

I can see it in his eyes these days, all these tight losses to soderling, berdych and djokovic hurt but dont mean as much as they did.

All that is left in the game for roger to win is the singles olympic gold, once he gets this his career will be forfilled.

Will take place on grass, so very good chances he will get it.

GL ROGER!

Probably true.

But also irrelevant.

i agree.. roger will be 31 in 2012.. and of the 13 men who have won singles gold in the entire history of olympic tennis, only one was over the age of 30 at the time: major josiah george ritchie at the 1908 summer olympics, at the age of 37..

and while i don't doubt anything's possible, something tells me the chances of roger pulling off olympic singles gold in 2012 are only negligibly better than his chances of ever beating rafa at r garros..

I bet he'll make it there, but I highly doubt he'll wi it. 2012 is a long time away, and Federer isn't getting any younger.

Unless he's actually tanking Grand Slams just for this Olympics, lmao. But I doubt he'll win it. He should just be grateful to have that doubles gold; it's not like he wins anything in doubles anyways.

It's not likely to happen, but still not impossible. Nadal will be watching those Olympic on a wheelchair, Murray probably chokes, struggling against the giant pressure, Djokovic is only average on grass.

Who knows?

I was certain they won't be giving the 2012 medal before 2012, but obviously that's not the case Oh wait, that's unrelated and you were just being a tard

You can hardly say someone is retarded when he makes a prediction 2 years in advance, now can you?

Of course you can, the same as I would call someone undertaking to predict the weather two years in advance retarded. The dumb attempt to play on medal from last Olyimpics makes it even more retarded .

Federer took part in 3 olympics...
He never won a single medal of any color even in his glorious days

He won't get it imo.Too much grass relaying here and there are more good grass court candidates other than fed.

Plus don't expect his bh to hold on some serious exchanges on such a fast surface.
