Roger Federer has confirmed that he will partner Martina Hingis at next year’s Olympic Games in Rio in the mixed doubles.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion, who won gold in the doubles in Beijing 2008 and silver for Switzerland in the singles at London 2012, was approached by Hingis last spring.

“Yes, I will play with Martina the mixed,” Federer told reporters.

“I’m very excited about that because I haven’t played with her I guess in 15 years.

 

“I looked up to her when I was younger, I thought she was the most unbelievable talent.

She’s almost my age and she was winning Grand Slams while I was still at the national tennis centre, trying to make it on the tour and I couldn’t believe how good she was.

I’m very excited about that.

” The duo last played together in 2001 when they won the Hopman Cup.
