Today Roger decided to withdraw from Halle, citing needed rest for his body and particularly his groin. Here is his message to the fans posted on rogerfederer.com.
I’ve unfortunately decided to pull out of The Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany. I am very disappointed as its one of my absolute favorite tournaments on the ATP Tour, but my body, especially my groin, really needs a rest. After talking with my team this morning, I feel that its way to risky to take a chance on aggravating it even more before Wimbledon.
I send my very best wishes to all my fans in Halle, and again I am so sorry I can’t go this year. But I will see you next year.
Lets hope Roger gets the proper rest he needs as he’s surely not 25 anymore and prepares well for winning Wimbledon.
It’s not just a fan site anymore. FedererFan07 is the best Federer site on the web.
