Swiss tennis great Roger Federer on Monday said he would play at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Federer, a four-time Olympian, says “at the end of the day my heart decided I would love to play at the Olympic Games again.”

Federer will turn 39 shortly after the Olympic tournament. He had previously planned his schedule up to Wimbledon, which ends two weeks before the Tokyo Games.

Federer won doubles gold for Switzerland with Stan Wawrinka at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and silver in singles at the 2012 London Games at Wimbledon.
