The Swiss Roger Federer, number 3 of ATP ranking, he retired this Friday from 1000 Masters of Rome because of an injury in the right leg, which gives the pass to the semifinals to the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, his rival this Friday.

"Regrettably, King Roger had to retire from the tournament because of an injury to his right leg, we wish him a quick recovery, thanks for the incredible emotions," reads the statement from the organizers of the Roman tournament.

Federer, champion this year in Dubai and Miami, had returned this year to compete in Rome after two years of absence, but announced his retirement after passing two rounds, all this Thursday, against Portuguese Joao Sousa and Croatian Borna Coric.

The one in Basel, from 37 years, lamented on Thursday the fact that the lines of the Grand Stand track, in which he played against Coric, were wet and reported that he had grazed the injury due to a fall.

"I do not understand how the players can accept it, they wet the track and wet lines means you can slip in. When I slipped, I hurt my foot and it hurt for two games, it also hurt my leg a bit, I do not know. I do not understand, "Federer said at the end of the game, at the press conference offered at the Foro Italico.

The withdrawal of the Swiss is the move to the semifinals of Tsitsipas, finalist in Madrid, who will face the winner of the Spanish duel between Rafa Nadal and Fernando Verdasco.
