“I do believe my situation has got that little star next to it. I am now the Wimbledon champion, and I think that gives me even more confidence coming to the Olympics. And maybe in some ways, it maybe takes some 'pressure,'” Roger Federer said, as he goes into the Olympics with a lot of confidence along with a pinch of pressure.
He would not stay in the athletes' village. Instead, Federer will stay in his usual house near the All England Club, something that has visibly worked for him over the fortnight. Federer has already featured in three Olympics, where he carried the Swiss flag at the opening ceremony twice, but said he might allow someone else to have that honor this time. He is the defending doubles gold medalist, winning it with Stanislas Wawrinka.
“Obviously, the Olympics is the next goal,” Federer said. He added, “I was taking it in steps, really: All-out until Wimbledon. And then, after that, take a break, reassess, prepare well, then come back for the Olympics and hopefully play well.”
The Olympic organizers have officially taken over the All England Club to make the amendments. Federer, is looking forward to the change, “Apparently, people are moving in and (are) just going to change everything. I mean ... A lot. Also, it`s going to be different, because all of the (staff) are going to be different. Normally, we have familiar faces, everybody we know. Those are all apparently gone, so that`s going to be a bit odd and disappointing, almost to a degree. But I`m sure the IOC are going to make it work. ... I`m excited to see how they`re going to make it work, because this already works as good as can be. So I don`t know how they`re going to make it better. But anyway, let them try.”
