Roger Federer Withdraws From Roland Garros by fergie001: 3:50pm On Jun 06
After playing into the early hours of Sunday in a match that lasted over three hours and ending 12:45am, Roger Federer had given a hint he may not continue playing in the French Open as he looked to protecting his knee.

He struggled to beat Dominik Koepfer after a pulsating three and a half hours.

The Swiss who turns 40 on August 8, underwent two knee surgeries in 2020 and is targeting a ninth Wimbledon title later this month on his favourite grass court surface.

He has won 20 Grand Slam men's singles titles, an all-time record shared with Rafael Nadal. Federer has been world No. 1 in the ATP rankings a total of 310 weeks – including a record 237 consecutive weeks – and has finished as the year-end No. 1 five times.

Federer has won 103 ATP singles titles, the second-most of all-time behind Jimmy Connors and including a record six ATP Finals.

He won the French Open once in 2009.

After discussions with my team, I've decided I will need to pull out of the French Open today.

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!

The coast is getting clearer for Rafael Nadal to lead the grand slam titles, though Federer isn’t a real challenge on the clay
