    The World No. 3 Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Madrid Masters Open with a back injury.

    The Swiss international suffered the setback during a practice session at the weekend and has decided to opt-out ahead of the second Grand Slam of the year later this month.

    “Sorry to the tournament for coming and leaving without playing,” Federer told a press conference, “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.”

    The 34-year-old has played just 13 times, winning 10 matches – across three tournaments this year.

    Federer, however, announced he would be return to an action for the Rome Masters next week.
