Roger Federer is not the only 30+ Olympic medal winner who is planning to play till the 2016 Rio Games. American brothers Mike and Bob are also hoping to play for four more years till the next games.
The Bryans, who will be 38 by the time Rio comes around, won the gold medal in mens doubles on Saturday.
"I mean we talked about it, 2016 is a goal," Mike Bryan commented."We want to go to Rio. I mean, we're going to be 38-years-old, we're not the young guys any more, but the training starts today. We're going to get ready for it."
That might sound an ambitious target, but doubles pairs rely on skill, teamwork and know-how as much as the pure athleticism, power and stamina which is vital for the top singles players.
"Doubles is a sport you can play until your late 30s, early 40s," commented Bob. "A couple of guys, a lot of guys, who are top 10 in the world in the doubles are closing in on 40.
"So that's our goal, we've already talked about it, and Rio, we've already put the pin on the calendar, and that's going to be a good way to shut it down."
