I am realistic and I know that I will not win the French title, and whoever thinks I will win or I can win it is,” the player, who won 20 Grand Slam titles, told reporters. Wrong”.

He added, “Of course, crazy things can happen, but I am not sure that during the last 50 years in the French Open, a player who is close to forty and after a year and a half of absence has won all the matches.”

Federer stressed that the coming weeks will be important in his season.

And he continued: “The feeling when you return to the professional tournaments pushes you to think about making better decisions, so when you left the match, I felt that I could have played better.”
