Buzz up! PrintHALLE, Germany, June 8 (Reuters) - New French Open champion Roger Federer will decide on Tuesday whether to defend his grasscourt title at Halle after victory in Paris left him “emotionally drained”, tournament spokesman Frank Hofen said.
Federer, who became only the sixth man to complete a career grand slam when he beat Robin Soderling in Sunday’s French Open final, has won Halle five times in the past six years.
“Federer will decide on Tuesday if he will start,” tournament organisers said in a statement after contacting Federer’s manager Tony Godsick.
“Federer feels ‘emotionally drained’ according to Godsick but he will take his decision once he returns to Switzerland tomorrow midday,” Hofen said.
