The first participation of Swiss Roger Federer in the Olympics took place at the Sydney 2000 Games, when he overtook David Prinosil, Karol Kucera, Mikael Tillstrom and Karim Alami before losing in the semifinals to Tommy Haas with a score of 6-3 6-2.
Federer then returned to action four years later in Athens, where he defeated Nikolaj Davydenko in three sets before making a sensational comeback against Thomas Berdych. In 2008, in Beijing, the now experienced Federer overtook Dmitry Tursunov, Rafael Arevalo and took revenge with Berdych, but was beaten by James Blake in the quarter-finals.
However, the Swiss was able to console himself with the double, in which he triumphed together with fellow countryman Stan Wawrinka. The last edition of the Olympics that saw Roger present was therefore that of London 2012, in which Federer got rid of Alejandro Falla, Julien Bennetau, Denis Istomin, John Isner and Juan Martin del Potro, booking the final challenge with Andy Murray.
Roger Federer says goodbye to a dream
The Scotsman, defeated a few days earlier in the last Wimbledon match by Federer, deserved a rematch with a score of 6-2 6-1 6-4. Absent from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, Roger has always promised to return in 2021 to be able to return to play Wimbledon (canceled last year) and the Olympics, postponed for twelve months due to the global Coronavirus pandemic.
However, the Basel champion has played much less than expected this season and, it seems, his knee problems still do not seem completely resolved. Having taken the court in Doha and Geneva without excellent results, Federer managed to reach the round of 16 at Roland Garros, where he preferred to forfeit during the match with Matteo Berrettini.
Arriving in London (after a bitter disappointment in Halle), Roger’s run broke in the quarterfinals against Hubert Hurkacz, who won with a clear 6-3 7-6 6-0. Following his departure from London, as we know, Federer regretfully announced that he will not take part in the Tokyo Olympics so as not to further compromise his right knee.
Forty years to go next August and with the awareness that he will no longer be present at the Games, Roger also had to say goodbye to his Olympic dream.

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov
The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.
The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.
The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.
World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”
Kyrgios, who has been very outspoken about the Adria Tour, hit back at Srdjan in an Instagram Story as he wrote ” don’t push the blame”.
