Roger Federer is considering withdrawing from the French Open, despite the tennis player reaching the last 16 after a thrilling four-set win over Germany’s Dominik Koepfer. He did so in a match that lasted more than three and a half hours and ended only after midnight.
“I have to decide whether to continue playing or not. Is it too risky to keep putting pressure on the knee? Is it a good time to rest?” asked the Swiss tennis player, who will turn 40 in August, after the game. off.
The 20-time Grand Slam title winner, who underwent two knee surgeries in 2020 and is only playing his third tournament since last year’s Australian Open, has always said Wimbledon is his most important tournament this year. That tournament starts in more than three weeks.
If the eighth seeded Federer continues in Paris, he will meet the Italian Matteo Berrettini, the number 9 on the placement list, on Monday.
