It could happen but don't be surprised if it doesn't. It's clear that Federer doesn't want to upset his millions of fans, and as a well oiled PR
machine, anything he does say will give his fans hope for the future, be it the near future or the distant future. I have no doubt he wants that singles gold, considering his BIGGEST rival Nadal has one himself, as well as one of his biggest rivals Murray. Of course Fed can overlook Murray, but given the fact Nadal still has a chance, be it small, to overtake Fed's slam record, Fed wants the gold to remain GOAT. All I can say is we will see.
