Roger Federer stated in Brisbane that he doesn’t think he’ll be playing mixed doubles with Martina Hingis at the BEFORE the Rio Olympics this summer.

“I doubt it. I haven’t spoken about it, but I can’t see myself doing that, to be quite honest,” Federer said in Brisbane Saturday.

Federer will also compete in the singles and likely the men’s doubles with Stan Wawrinka. Federer is trying to win a singles gold, something already in the possession of Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.

The Rio Olympics begin August 6.

dari Says:

He was saying he couldn’t see himself playing with her at the slams before Rio to practice. He announced on his own Twitter a few weeks ago he was indeed playing with her at the olympics

RZ Says:

Thanks Dari. That makes more sense. I think he has a better chance of winning the mixed with Hingis than he does the singles or men’s doubles.

elina Says:

LOL exactly. Federer’s quote is correct but the interpretation here is false.

He was asked:

Q. Plans for Olympics? Plan to play mixed with Martina in Melbourne or any of the other two slams before Rio?

Click bait.
