ZURICH — Roger Federer is already focusing on the 2021 season, including the postponed Tokyo Olympics, as he recovers from two knee surgeries.

Federer said Monday that he is not yet able to play top-level tennis but is on the mend.

“I feel much better again,” Federer said when taking questions from fans online. “I’m not at the level where I can play [tennis] fully yet.”

Federer has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles but has never won an Olympic gold medal in singles.

“The goal is really that I’m ready for next year,” Federer said.

The Olympic final is scheduled for Aug. 1, 2021, one week before Federer — who took doubles gold with Swiss teammate Stan Wawrinka at the 2008 Beijing Games — turns 40.
