Roger Federer has hardly played in the last 17 months because of a knee injury. His knee was put to test in the third round of the French Open against Koepfer. Although he beat the German and registered a four-set victory, he was physically exhausted and his knee was causing problems. Roger Federer is aiming for his record 21st Grand Slam title at Wimbledon this month. He mentioned this is the reason for pulling out of the tournament.

“After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of the French Open today,” the 20-time Grand Slam winner said in his tweet.

He further added in his tweet, “After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation it’s important that I listen to my body and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery. I am thrilled to have gotten 3 matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on court. See everyone soon!”.

“We were all delighted to see Roger back in Paris, where he played three high-level matches. We wish him all the best for the rest of the season.”
