Federer want to play Rio 2016 Olympics

Roger Federer, who will try to get his first gold medal in singles at the 2012 London Olympics, commented during a press conference that he would like to play also the Rio 2016 Games.

The Swiss said that if his body is ok and his family agrees he will be there.

"There's so many moving parts," Federer, who turns 31 on Aug. 8, said Thursday. "They also have a role in this decision-making. But the mind still wants me to play, and I hope the body allows me to do it as well."

For now 2016 is too far away and first we have the 2012 Olympics so he will start his campaign agains Alejandro Falla, who pushed him to five sets before losing in the first round at Wimbledon in 2010.
