Federer said in a statement: ‘After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of Roland Garros today.
‘After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation it’s important that I listen to my body and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery.
‘I am thrilled to have gotten three matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on court.’
The 39-year-old was scheduled to play his fourth-round match against Matteo Berrettini on Monday.
