Roger Federer’s Dream Remains Unfulfilled as Tokyo Olympics 2021 Reportedly to Be Called Off



  1. With 10 months spent with the coronavirus around the world, we are still not out of it. Thus, the biggest sporting event of the year, the Tokyo Olympics 2021, might be called off.

For the Swiss maestro Roger Federer, this could be the end of his Olympic Gold quest.

The former chief executive of the 2012 London Olympics, Sir Keith Mills, gave insights on the current scenario. To begin with, he stressed that the organizers in Japan should start making cancellation plans.


“If I was sitting in the shoes of the organizing committee in Tokyo, I would be making plans for a cancellation,” Mills said. “And I’m sure they have plans for a cancellation. They’ve got another month or so before they need to make a call.”


The event had been scheduled for last year, but it got canceled due to the pandemic outbreak. This year, too, the result is headed in the same direction.

Presently, Japan is in a state of emergency as the pandemic outbreak hit them recently. If the situation gets better, the event might begin as scheduled on July 23. However, this looks unlikely from every angle.


A report even suggested that the Japanese government has privately canceled the event and is looking to book a place in 2032.

Therefore, the 39-year-old Federer’s dream of over 20 years of winning an Olympic gold might remain unfulfilled.

Roger Federer will not kiss the Olympic Gold medal

Federer had later withdrawn from the 2016 Rio Olympics due to injury. But consequently, he had been dreaming of making a comeback and grabbing what was missing from his trophy cabinet.


Earlier, the Basel-born had even conveyed that he was looking forward to playing in the Tokyo Olympics and winning there. His reaction to the news of the canceled event might be woeful. Hopefully, Federer will pick up his 21st Slam on the ATP Tour and balance his Olympic loss.
