Swiss tennis player Roger Federer has retired from the French Open and will not participate in the round of 16 match against Matteo Berrettini.
He had previously announced that after a three-hour match with Dominic Koepfer, he would have to consider and evaluate the condition caused by knee pain. Federer underwent two knee surgeries last year.
“After discussing with the team, I decided to retire from the French Open. After two knee surgeries and more than a year of rehabilitation, it is important to listen to my body and not overdo it on the road to full recovery. I am very happy to have it. “Played three games. There is no better feeling than returning to the game,” Federer said.
Federer’s goal is to get the most prepared for the Wimbledon Tennis Open from June 28 to July 11, so he does not want to risk a deterioration in his health in France.
