Roger Federer expects ''something special'' at London OlympicsLondon: World number one Roger Federer said he is expecting "something special" at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Olympic tennis will take place at Wimbledon where Federer won his record equalling seventh Championships this month. He is competing in the men`s singles and doubles events.

London 2012 will be the Swiss player`s fourth Games. And he has twice carried his nation`s flag at the opening ceremony -- Athens and Beijing.

Federer won the men`s doubles title in Beijing with Stanislas Wawrinka and the two will team up again to defend their title.


Federer said: "It`s amazing that this is already my fourth Olympics. Always something special has happened at every Olympic Games I`ve taken part in. I learned a lot as well -- like living in the Village, carrying the flag, responsibilities, seeing huge press rooms, facing a lot of pressure, winning gold."

"I just made the cut back in 2000. I was still very young then... only 18-19. I was obviously able to make the Olympics. That was a big deal for me."

"There were a lot of things that I was able to take away from the Olympic Games. I hope it`s going to be something similar this time."


"I was in central London recently and I did see they were preparing a big square for the Olympics, which I`m sure is going to be amazing."
