Roger Federer managed to qualify for the 1/8 finals of Roland Garros after more than 3 and a half hours of play, but withdrew from the race due to a knee injury. After the match he was diagnosed and decided not to continue.
The Swiss tennis player won against the German Dominik Koefer 3-1. Federer will not risk on the eve of the big tournament “Wimbledon” which starts on June 28, a grand slam that he has in his heart and greater chances to win.
