Swiss tennis star Roger Federer withdraws from Tokyo 2020

Swiss tennis star Roger Federer confirmed Tuesday that he has pulled out of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

“During the grasscourt season, I unfortunately experienced a setback with my knee, and have accepted that I must withdraw from the Tokyo Olympic Games. I am greatly disappointed, as it has been an honour and highlight of my career each time I have represented Switzerland,” Federer wrote on Twitter.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner said has already begun rehabilitation in hopes of returning to the tour later this summer and he wished the Swiss team the best of luck.
