Roger spells it out very clear, he knows he wants Olympic Singles Gold. He knows this is his last chance, he knows he must do it

He's said the same thing at every Olympics. His most painful defeat was the 2000 defeat to De Pasquale.

Yes I recall he said he cried for hours after that one

Then shock defeats to Berdych and Blake in 04 and 08, respectable top 10 guys, then the Silver vs Murray in '12, and then had to miss '16 from injury

He knows he must win this time

Probably the last chance for No1e to get an Olympic gold medal, and almost certainly the last chance for Roger for singles gold.
Only thing is if one of them gets it, especially No1e, he might retire on the spot.

IF Rafa is playing at 38 in 2024 in Paris Olympics, he would still be the favorite.

Respectfully,
masterclass

It could happen. Best of 3 favors 40 year old legs. Also the possibility Japan/uniqlo could fix it for RF. Oh, that's right, match fixing never happens in the top levels of pro tennis, it only happens on the lowest levels but it does not happen much, just a few isolated incidents.

It makes sense. He'll try to peak for Wimby & Olympics. Can he do it? I would never rule him out.

Federer just needs to heal up and retire for his fans and the sport already FFS - he's so desperate to keep playing to protect the few records he will have by the time Novak and Rafa are done, it's getting embarassing

Roger the GOAT will win the Olympics AND win Wimbledon and then retire and become Regierungspräsident of Basel. 😎 😎 😎
Better idea He should push for the Basel 28' Olimpics :unsure: retire winning gold, along the way 8 more Wimbys, 8 more Basels and Halles to his name
