How high Federer's price for Rome?

On Thursday Roger Federer go to 4. Time as a professional have to ride two sections on the same day (and won), on Friday, he had to go to the 4. Time in his career Forfeit to give. Rather than to establish, in a duel with Stefanos Tsitsipas the semi-final opponent, Rafael Nadal, sobered he the Roman tournament with a battle-free finish. At half past two o'clock, he stated through a Communiqué, he was disappointed to be able, due to problems in my right leg not to compete. "I'm not physically 100 percent and I have decided after consulting with my Team to play. Rome was always one of my favorite cities, and I hope that I will be back next year."

Federer was confessed on Thursday, almost four hours. After the victory over Borna Coric, he had mentioned the evening problems in the leg as a result of the spaces between the sentences to be watered and the players are sent in his opinion too early on the Court. He had to umpire Carlos Bernardes at the beginning of the 3. Set of complains too. This explained to him: "If it is dangerous, you don't have to play."

The pressure to play is on the players but great, when thousands of spectators and the TV stations would otherwise have to wait, said Federer. "I don't understand why the players went along. Because wet lines mean that you slide. And as I slid, ached after a toe while about two Games, and also my leg."

The fourth Forfait

the pain got worse, obviously, overnight. Because Federer is none that rises without weighty reasons from a tournament. For the first time, Forfait he had Blake given in 2008 in Paris-Bercy against James, then in 2012, in Doha, against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and 2014 before the final of the ATP Finals in London against Novak Djokovic, always because of the back.

While he was with his back problems-and-white deal, is it a new injury. In view of the fact that he won the hard-fought match against Coric still, it should not be too bad. Nevertheless, the Fear begins to question whether he has compromised his short-term start-up commitment in the Rome of his opportunities, for the first time in 2015, once again at the French Open to compete, which starts in eight days, or whether, at least in its preparation could suffer.

Given the shape, the playing Federer in the five matches in Madrid and Rome, he would include also in Paris, to the extended circle of favorites. In Roland Garros, he was five times in the final, won it in 2009 and joined since 2005, at least in the quarter-finals.
