Roger FedererThe timing of the French Open has come to an end.
The Swiss tennis star withdrew from the French Open on Sunday, citing concerns over his physical condition following a terrible third-round win over Dominik Koepfer.
Federer participated in his first major tournament since the Australian Open 2020. After this event, he underwent a couple of operations on his right knee.
The 39-year-old said last month that he was not ready to fight for the French Open title this spring and had his sights set on Wimbledon, which he won a record eight times.
Federer took on Koepfer 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 7-6 (4), 7-5 in the third round and should play Matteo Berrettini in the fourth round on Monday.
