London, July 10(ANI): Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer has said he hopes to make his country proud by winning the gold medal at the London Olympics, which would also complete a unique Wimbledon double for him.
The Olympic tennis matches are scheduled to take place at the All England Club, and Federer, who won the Wimbledon title for a record seventh time on Sunday after beating local hope Andy Murray, wants to make his nation proud.
"I just hope I can do well here at the Olympics in 20 days time, enjoy myself again and savor the unique experience playing at the club," The Telegraph quoted Federer, as saying.
"I hope I can make my country proud," he added.
Federer said he won't be staying in the Olympics village this time around, and would follow the same routine he was during the Wimbledon.
"I've stayed in the Olympic Village twice before. In Athens, when I was No.1 it was distracting [when he got knocked out by Tomas Berdych in the second round], but in a good way I suppose," Federer said.
"But I thought it would be impossible for London. So I'll do the same as I did for this tournament, rent the same house, have the same routine and hopefully be successful," he added. (ANI)
