Johannesburg, Dec.12 (ANI): Swiss maestro Roger Federer has confirmed that he will team up with compatriot Grand Slam winning star Martina Hingis in the mixed doubles event of next year’s Rio Olympics.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion said that he would play with Martina in the mixed, adding that he was very excited about the pairing as he hadn’t played with the latter in 15 years, Sport24 reported.
Federer joined forces with Hingis last in their victorious campaign at the Hopman Cup in Australia in 2001.
The world number three secured his first Olympic gold medal when he teamed up with Stan Wawrinka in men’s doubles event in Beijing in 2008.
Federer also grabbed a silver medal after suffering a straight sets defeat to Andy Murray in London four years later. (ANI)
