Roger Federer announced on Tuesday he has withdrawn from the upcoming Tokyo Olympics after a “setback” with his recovery from a knee injury.

“I am greatly disappointed, as it has been an honour and highlight of my career each time I have represented Switzerland. I have already begun rehabilitation in the hopes of returning to the tour later this summer. I wish the entire Swiss team the best of luck and I will be rooting hard from afar,” tweeted Federer.
