  • Les meilleurs moments du match Novak Djokovic- Ricardas Berankis

Roger Federer a déclaré forfait avant les huitièmes de finale de Roland-Garros, dimanche après-midi, au lendemain de sa victoire tardive contre Dominik Koepfer.

Pour son premier Grand Chelem depuis seize mois, le joueur bientôt âgé de 39 ans a bataillé jusqu'à 00h45 pour s'imposer 7-6 (7/5), 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (7/4), 7-5.

Ainsi, le Suisse aux vingt trophées en Grand Chelem "ne sai (t) pas" s'il se présentera ou non de l'autre côté du filet lundi. "Je dois décider si je continue à jouer ou non".

Federer, ex-N.1 mondial aujourd'hui 8e, affrontera l'Italien Matteo Berrettini pour une place en quarts de finale. "N'est-ce pas trop risqué de continuer à tirer (sur le genou), n'est-ce pas le bon moment pour se reposer?", s'interrogeait-il en conférence de presse.

De son duel si serré avec Koepfer, " c'était un match complètement à part. "Ma première night session à Roland-Garros, devant... personne", avait-il raconté un peu plus tôt".

Quelques heures auparavant, Le champion suisse avait exprimé sa satisfaction d'avoir réussi à battre Dominik Koepfer au terme d'un match très disputé. "Mais j'adore le tennis, j'aime jouer". C'était peut-être le seul avantage du fait qu'il n'y ait eu personne ce soir: "je suis resté mega calme", a-t-il confié. "J'ai bien commencé, je me suis bien senti, j'aurais pu prendre le dessus plus franchement, mais il s'est bien battu, il m'a posé plein de difficultés. Après un match comme ça, ce n'est jamais évident mais, en tout cas, ça me prouve qu'on est sur le bon chemin depuis ces derniers mois", a-t-il déclaré. Devant les tribunes vides du court central et face à un adversaire en sur régime, Roger Federer a manqué de jus à plusieurs reprises, avant de finalement l'emporter.
