Federer out of Marseille
World number one Roger Federer has pulled out of the Marseille Open next week because of injury, organisers said on Saturday. Federer, the Australian Open champion, was the top seed in the tournament, which also features Russian Marat Safin and Spaniard Juan-Carlos Ferrero.
"I have several injuries. I have pain in my right foot, another in my shoulder since the Australian Open and also a general weariness," said Federer.
"Had it been a decisive game in the Davis Cup I would have played. But I'm not in shape to defend my title here and am not interested in losing in the first or second round."
