Leonardo Mayer reveals injury worries before facing Roger Federer

Leonardo Mayer defeated Nicolas Mahut in four sets to reach the French Open fourth round and book a clash against Roger Federer. The Argentine is not at his best physically. "I have been dealing with issues for three days.

I had some medical tests and I have a left leg issue, that's why I take a tape on it. I was about to withdraw from the match against Diego Schwartzman", said Mayer. On his next match against Federer, Mayer joked: "I did not know I had to face Federer.

It's a good match... For him!" On his win over Filip Krajinovic over the course of two days, Stefanos Tsitsipas said: "It's strange when you comeback to play after one day. It's not something that happens often in Majors.

Changes are important mentally. It's not an easy situation for your nerves and your patience. I am happy to have finished the work with the crowd supporting me. Today I felt slower than yesterday. It's important to stay focused.

I faced some struggles and I did not have so much energy and speed. My opponent played well. You need big energy and physical strength in a Grand Slam. It's like a marathon."
