Federer Pulls Out of Olympics After ‘Setback’



The withdrawal of Roger Federer from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is still in the news today. It was previously reported that Federer has been pulled out of the Tokyo Olympic Games owing to a knee injury. The 39-year-old made the statement himself, stating that he will return to the ATP Tour later this year after undergoing treatment.

Roger Federer’s Olympic Victories

Back in the 2012 London Olympics, Federer won the silver medal in the singles category and took home the gold in the doubles with Stan Wawrinka back in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. His physique, unfortunately, is not in the proper condition for another Olympic medal pursuit following his two knee surgeries in 2020.

In an Instagram post, Federer wrote the following:

“Due to the grass-court season, I, unfortunately, experienced a setback with my knee and have accepted that I must withdraw from the Tokyo Olympic Games. I am greatly disappointed, as it has been an honour and highlight of my career each time I have represented Switzerland.

He added, “I have already begun rehabilitation in the hopes of returning to the tour later this summer. I wish the entire Swiss team the best of luck and I will be rooting hard from afar. As always, Hopp Schwiz!”
