Roger Federer has withdrawn from the French Open saying he needs to listen to his body after having two knee surgeries last summer.
"After discussions with my team, I've decided I will need to pull out of Roland-Garros today," Federer said in a statement. "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 3 matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on court.
