Roger Federer Discusses ‘Fluid Situation’ of the Tokyo Olympic Uncertainty

Roger Federer brought up the idea of a possible merge.

Roger Federer, the Swiss maestro, spoke about the ‘fluid situation’ on the hosting of the Tokyo Olympics this year. As the great veteran is still in a dilemma about taking part in the prestigious event.

The Olympics were supposed to take place last year, but the raise in COVID-19 cases led to postponing the event to 2021. However, the counts of the patients escalated again this year. As a result, there are again discussions about the Olympics.

Many players have already raised their voices to cancel the event for the betterment of the world. Even the Swiss pro-Federer doesn’t know whether he’ll participate in the event. He wants to win a medal for his country, although he’s even ready to not go to Tokyo if the number of cases increases.

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will take place in 2021 because of the COVID-19 outbreak last year.

“At the moment, we have the impression that it will happen. We know it’s a fluid situation,” reported Roger Federer. “And you can also decide as an athlete if you want to go. If you feel there’s a lot of resistance, maybe it’s better not to go. I don’t know.”

The 39-year-old has been out of the sport for most of the last year because of undergoing two knee surgeries. Fed made a comeback in the Qatar Open, where he lost to Nikoloz Basilashvili with a score of 6-3, 1-6, 5-7 at the quarter-finals. After the tournament, the Swiss went back home to work on his form and recently he even took the COVID-19 vaccine.

Roger commented on staying in Geneva, “Even if I’m staying in Switzerland, I think there are advantages. Above all, I did it for others because I don’t want to give it to anyone else, even if I still remain very careful.”
