Four-time finalist at the Italian Open Roger Federer has been edged out of the Italian Open courtesy of right leg injury.
Federer announced his withdrawal from the Italian Open on his twitter account as the Swiss wrote:
“I had to take the tough decision this morning to pull out of the Italian Open as I am not feeling 100% physically. The fan reaction and crowd energy during my matches yesterday remind me exactly why I am still competing on the ATP Tour”. Mazie Grille!
The 37-year-old was expected to meet Greek eighth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas for a place in the semi-finals before his exit.
