Swiss star Martina Hingis who was all set to pair up with Roger Federer in the mixed doubles at the Rio Olympics has reacted to his decision to pullout from the games. Federer pulled out to give his knee and body more time to heal.

Hingis said it was unfortunate but wished the Former World Number 1 a quick recovery.

In a statement released on Facebook, she said:

It is unfortunate that Roger will not be playing any tournaments for the remainder of the 2016 season, which includes the Rio Olympics. Naturally, I would have loved to partner with him there, but I know that it was a very tough decision for him and he is equally disappointed. Obviously, I wish him a full and speedy recovery and hope to see him playing again soon!
