Roger Federer is sticking to his plan of playing no clay lead-up events to the French Open. The Swiss has withdrawn from all Madrid and Rome – though he could still take a late wildcard – and said yesterday in Zurich where he played Andy Murray. that there’s been no change of plan.
“I’ll be resting most of the time and the body needs a rest,” Federer said. “I can feel it. It’s not the youngest body but everything is good. I’m gonna enjoy my time with the family.
“Eventually I’m gonna get back to practice, and when I do, I’m gonna go full steam, and I should be back for the French Open. That’s the plan.”
Federer beat Murray 6-3, 7-6(5) in the exo. Proceeds went to the Roger Federer Foundation to help support projects in Switzerland and Africa.
Federer will play another Match for Africa on April 29 in Seattle with John Isner and Bill Gates.
