Roger Federer says the 2012 London Olympics beginning this week may not be his last, as he looks ahead to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. As for the present, Federer, the top men's singles seed at the 2012 London Games, has drawn Colombia’s Alejandro Falla in the first round at the London Olympic Tennis Event, which begins on Saturday at the All England Club, Wimbledon.
Federer, who is appearing at his fourth Olympic Games, has been placed in the same half of the draw as fourth seed David Ferrer, who will play Vasek Pospisil of Canada.
Federer has never won a gold medal in men's singles at the Olympics. His best effort came in Sydney in 2000, when he finished fourth. He went out in the second round in Athens in 2004 and in the quarterfinals in Beijing in 2008.
Federer will be 35-years-old in 2016 when the Summer Games come to Rio.
