“I arrived and I was okay, and then I practiced on Saturday and hurt my back a little bit in practice, “Then I was scheduled to practice yesterday and today, but I just don’t feel like I can practice,” the Swiss international narrated.

The 17-time grand slam champion who had been due to play either Nicolas Mahut or Joao Sousa on Wednesday, added: “I don’t want to take more chances, as I know I’m not going to be fully ready (for that match).

“I would rather play it safe and rest now and get ready for Rome.”

Federer who won the event in 2012, said he was “frustrated” and “a little bit sad not to be playing here.”
