CINCINNATI: Roger Federer has said that he would speak to former world number one Martina Hingis about the possibility of a dream mixed doubles pairing for Switzerland at the 2012 London Olympics. Federer said he would talk to the now-retired Hingis to see if she would be interested. “Might as well see if she is available,” said Federer when asked if he would consider playing mixed doubles with Hingis in London. “Even if she is retired, she might think about it at least.” Federer won doubles gold with Stanislas Wawrinka at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but he has never won singles gold at the Games.
