Roger Federer has pulled out of what was possibly his last French Open as a precautionary measure to rest up before Wimbledon.

 

Federer appears unwilling to risk his troublesome knee after an injury-plagued past 18 months.

 

 The 20-time Grand Slam title winner, who will be forty in two months’ time, had battled over three and a half hours until 12.45am Sunday morning to reach the last 16 in Paris.

 

 The Swiss star was due to play Italy’s Matteo Berrettini today for a place in the quarter-finals, but Federer had cast doubt over whether he would continue following his win over Dominik Koepfer.

 

 He is chasing a ninth title at Wimbledon which starts on June 28.
