Federer hasn't decided whether to carry Swiss flag in London 2012 Olympics

Roger Federer has not decided whether to accept an offer to carry Switzerland's flag during the opening ceremonies for the London Olympics.

Federer says he might give the honor to someone else.

“I was offered, but I might give another athlete a chance,” said the World No. 1 after winning his seventh Wimbledon over Andy Murray.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion was the Swiss flag-bearer at two other Summer Games.

He teamed with Stanislas Wawrinka to win a gold medal in doubles at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Speaking Monday a day after winning his record-tying seventh Wimbledon title, Federer says an announcement on the flag choice could come "in the next 10 days or so."

The opening ceremonies are July 27. The Olympic tennis competition, which is being held at the All England Club, starts the following day.
