Federer feels at home on Wimbledon grass
Roger Federer says he's more comfortable playing the Olympic Games at Wimbledon than prior Olympic sites. Federer, who has won seven Wimbledon titles, will play Britain’s Andy Murray for the gold medal tomorrow. The Swiss, who partnered Stan Wawrinka to win the doubles gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, has never won a singles medal; he is guaranteed at least a silver. "Now its finally true I have an Olympic singles medal," Federer told reporters. "It’s been a long time coming. I was exactly in this situation 12 years ago. Missed the semis against Tommy Haas, lost the bronze medal match. That was a rough turnaround for me, rough couple matches at the end. But it was great tournament as a whole in Sydney. I’m happy I took it a step further, secured the medal now. Plus I have the opportunity for a gold. I feel very much at home here at Wimbledon. But that’s been the case for a very long time. That’s why I’m very fortunate, our generation is fortunate, that the Olympics are taking place at Wimbledon, a place where I have great memories from."
