Roger Federer wants to add an Olympic singles gold medal to his list of achievements in tennis after securing his 70th career title at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

The world number three defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Sunday in what was a record sixth victory at the season-ending event.

Federer’s triumph secured his 70th career title in his 100th final, a landmark to make up for the fact that he failed to win a grand slam in a season for the first time since 2002.

But the 30-year-old has vowed to come back stronger next year as he bids for a gold medal in the men’s singles at the London 2012 Olympics, to go with the one he won in the doubles at Beijing in 2008.

If any extra incentive were needed, it will be held at Wimbledon — which Federer calls ‘my club’ — a place where he has won six times.
