A Noticeably Rusty Roger Federer Advances into the 4th Round at Roland Garros

Roger Federer defeated German, Dominik Koepfer, in a grueling 4 set match that ended at Midnight. 

The Swiss was noticeably sluggish in the match, particularly after the second set. Federer commented on it during the press conference stating, “I wasn’t sure how much was left in the tank.”

Federer is set for yet another challenge in tomorrow’s match against 25 year old Italian, Matteo Berrettini, who is sitting at a career high world number 8 ranking. 

However this match just might not happen, as Federer stated in his press conference following yesterday’s win “I need to decide if I keep on playing or not”. Federer, obviously worried about his weak knee, might pull out of the French Open in order to begin practicing on grass courts and preparing himself for Wimbledon.

The record 8-time Wimbledon men’s champion, has said numerous times that all his preparation and recovery is going into getting himself ready for it this year’s championship that starts June 28.

Whatever the Maestro’s choice may be, the odds are stacked against him. Will Federer be able to pull off one more title run before age forces him to retire?
