Federer heads off on holiday before returning to Wimbledon

6:15 am on 10 July 2012

The seven times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has started a week's holiday, but he's already looking forward to returning to London and he can't stop thinking about a unique Wimbledon-Olympic double at the All England club.

Federer had only two hours sleep after his win over Andy Murray yesterday, and he says his latest record-equalling 7th Wimbledon title has boosted his confidence going into the Olympics which he's been thinking about ever since London won the Games seven years ago.

London will be Federer's fourth Olympics, but this time he'll be staying in the same rented house in London, rather than the athletes' village.
