Roger Federer has confirmed his desire to play in the 2020 Olympic Games, which will end the day after his 39th birthday.

The UNIQLO exho was to have co-starred stablemate Kei Nishikori.

"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 said, via the Olympic Channel. He had to skip the 2016 games in Rio due to a knee problem that forced him to miss the second half of the year.

The only time he won a gold medal in the Olympics was in 2008 at Beijing, China where he successfully sealed the finals and that too with Swiss mate Stan Wawrinka in the men's doubles category.

The Swiss great, 38, had been undecided on competing in a fifth Games, but after an exhibition match with John Isner in Tokyo he revealed he will have another shot at one of the very few titles to have eluded him - Olympic singles gold.

Federer added: "I checked with the team if it was okay for me to announce it here, while I am actually in the city where the Olympics will take place". This happened when the current third-ranked tennis star has recently shared the news with his fans that he will be participating in next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo.

"I'll try to be ready for the Tokyo Olympics in great shape", the Serb told reporters. But I don't want to dream that far. We did a lot of traveling last year so we cooled things down a little bit this year, but she was insane excited to go back to Japan, and she knows what the Olympics means to me'. Could you imagine if I won the gold?
