Report: Federer accepts Hingis offer for Olympic mixed partnership

Lausanne, Switzerland (dpa) - Roger Federer and Martina Hingis are preparing to reform a partnership from 15 years ago to enter the mixed doubles of the 2016 Olympic Games, a report said Sunday.

Federer, 34, and Hingis, one year his senior, won the Hopman Cup mixed team event in Perth, Australia, in 2000 but could now go for gold in Rio, Le Matin newspaper reported.

According to the paper, Federer has agreed to partner Hingis at the Games after she first floated the idea in 2014. But that‘s not all for what will surely be the final Olympic appearance for all-time great Federer.

He is also likely to play doubles with Stan Wawrinka - that pair won the 2008 Beijing gold - as well as competing in singles, where he finished runner-up to Andy Murray at London 2012.

The rest of the Swiss players are also looking to full schedules, with Hingis and teenager Belinda Bencic teaming in the women‘s doubles and Wawrinka playing with fellow Vaudois and French Open semi-finalist Timea Bacsinszky in mixed.

"Why not try for all of the golds?" said Severin Luethi, Federer‘s coach, the Davis Cup captain and also head of the Swiss Olympic tennis delegation.

"We can always dream. The ideal would be that each athlete can play at least one doubles event along with singles."
