Roger Federer has said that he plans to play at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion had previously spoken about his schedule up until the Wimbledon Championships and has now confirmed his desire to be present in Tokyo.

“At the end of the day my heart decided I would love to play the Olympic Games again,” Federer told reporters.

“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].

“I carried the flag twice for Switzerland in Athens and Beijing, I’ve got a gold and a silver, and I would love to play again so I’m very excited.”

Federer missed the last edition in Rio de Janeiro due to injury and would need a wild-card exemption to partake due to the fact that he hasn’t played Davis Cup games to be eligible.
