Roger Federer has pulled out of the Gerry Weber Open grass-court tournament to rest his groin ahead of Wimbledon. Federer, who lost to Rafael Nadal in the French Open final on Sunday, was beaten by Lleyton Hewitt in the 2010 Halle final and was due to play the Australian in the first round. Federer's withdrawal leaves Tomas Berdych as the highest-seeded player left in the draw at No. 2.

 

Tournament director Ralf Weber said Federer's withdrawal was "a personal disappointment that I cannot describe at the moment." "I am stunned," Weber said. "Our plans for the past year have been nearly exclusively with Roger appearing. And he never gave us any doubts that he had health problems. I clearly expressed my disappointment to his management."
