Wow. The season is getting more and more disappointing. I hope things start to turn around soon for Roger.

I thought this year seemed to start off pretty well, but it just seems to have been all downhill since then

Roger Federer withdraws from Madrid Open

Roger Federer will not play in this week's Madrid Open due to a back injury.

The third-ranked Federer suffered the injury during practice Saturday and is withdrawing as a precaution. He described the back injury as "normal back things I've had in past."

"I'm OK with it," Federer told reporters. "At least I know what it is."

The 35-year-old Federer, a three-time winner in Madrid, had been a late addition to the field this week. The tournament was not originally on his schedule, but the former No. 1 decided to include it as part of his preparations for the French Open in three weeks.

He appeared fine in practice on Saturday but canceled his media appearance Sunday and had not been back to the courts, raising doubts about his participation.

Federer has played in only three events this season. He missed three months earlier this year after undergoing knee surgery following the Australian Open.

He is another high-profile name to drop out of the Madrid tournament. On Friday, Serena Williams announced that she would not play in the tournament because of illness.

"I'd rather play it safe and get ready for Rome," Federer said. "If I can't play Rome, it's not the end of the world, but hopefully I'll get to play."

Swiss star stopped practice early because of injury

Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Mutua Madrid Open because of a back injury, the World No. 3 announced on Monday. The Swiss was scheduled to play in his second tournament since undergoing knee surgery in February.

“Sorry to the tournament for coming and leaving without playing,” Federer said. “I arrived and I was okay, and then I practised on Saturday and hurt my back a little bit in practice and then stopped early.”

I'm not optimistic about his chances in Miami, it's been his worst MS since he won it back in 2006. He lost to Roddick there twice which pretty much sums things up. But let's hope the knee is fully recovered and he's feeling better

I mean it's nice he is back for Miami, which is earlier than expected. Roger always comes back when he is 100% ready, he doesn't mess around when it comes to fitness, health etc.

But I was expecting him to not play Miami, seeing as after this he isn't going to play a hard court tournament until the summer?!

Not sure why he would train on a HC when he's got two months of clay + one month of grass??

Anyway, not expecting much, a couple wins and competitive juices flowing would be good.

At least he will be less rusty when I see him in Monte Carlo
