Why did Roger Federer pull out of French Open 2021
The 2021 French Open garnered huge attention as it marked the comeback of Federer in a major tournament, for the first time since the 2020 Australian Open. The Swiss Maestro lived up to the expectations by playing pitch-perfect tennis and reached the fourth round, where he was due to play Matteo Berrettini.
But Federer's match against Dominik Koepfer in the third round took a toll on the Swiss' body as he couldn't recover completely after being on court for more than 3.5 hours.
As a result, Federer pulled out of his pre-quarters match and ended his French Open run.
Roger Federer retirement
