Federer pulls out of French Open due to fitness reasons
Paris: Roger Federer withdrew from French Open tennis ahead of his fourth-round match against Matteo Berrettini, the tournament announced on Sunday.
“After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of Roland Garros today,” Federer wrote on Twitter.
“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 three matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on court.”
