WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Roger Federer did make his way to Wimbledon this year, after all - not to compete, mind you, but to take part in a ceremony marking the centenary of Centre Court on Sunday - and declared his intention to try to return in 2023 with a racket in hand.

"Just tried to be successful here and represent the sport well. I hope I did that," said Federer, who won a men's-record eight of his 20 Grand Slam titles at the All England Club and was greeted with a standing ovation. "And I hope I can come back ... one more time."

Instead of the mandatory all-white playing uniform, Federer wore a dark suit and tie, his purple Wimbledon member's badge pinned to a jacket lapel. The Swiss star, who turns 41 on Aug. 8 and has been sidelined for a year by knee problems, was among more than two dozen winners of singles championships at the grass-court tournament who appeared in the main stadium during a 35-minute tribute to a stadium that opened in 1922.
