Roger Federer has stunned the tennis community after he announced his decision of not playing the upcoming Roland Garros. Apparently, the Maestro has taken the decision after he trained a bit on red clay in Switzerland and he wasn’t happy on how his body was reacting.

Roger not done with the French Open. LUTHI

According to Federer’s coach, Severin Luthi, the Maestro is not done with the clay and with the Roland Garros, and it is plausible that he will play on the dirt next year.

During a phone interview with The New York Times, Severin commented

“I’m very confident that Roger will play the French Open again. He can play a different schedule next year. It’s not because he’s not playing the French this year that he’s done with it. It’s not because he is not playing on clay this year that he won’t be playing on it more again in the years ahead.

We always said we were going to take the decision around the 10th of May. We just wanted to have all the information and also wait a little to see how practice went and how he feels.”

About the knee…

Then Severin added

“You never know. You don’t have the guarantee that you are not getting hurt, but really the knee is in perfect shape, so that luckily was not an issue.”

Now you can expect a fantastic stint on grass from Roger. 

Game on!

HE WANTS MANY MORE OF THESE
