Federer will not continue the competitions

The Swiss Roger Federer, who was trying to recover after two knee surgeries that kept him out of action for a year, announced that he would not complete the Roland Garros competitions on the eve of his match in the final price against Italian Matteo Berrettini, according to the organizers.

Federer said he has had two knee surgeries and more than a year of rehab and needs time to recover.
