Newsclip®: [Sports] Federer out of French Open; 1st Slam he'll miss since 1999 - Houston Chronicle

"The third-ranked Federer, who has 88 career titles, won his only French Open title in 2009, completing a career Grand Slam. Skipping the French Open will give Federer more time to rest, recuperate and prepare for Wimbledon, the grass-court major tournament he has won a record-equaling seven times, and the Summer Olympics. Because of Federer's withdrawal, nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal will move up from No. 5 to No. 4 in the seedings, meaning he will avoid a possible quarterfinal rematch against top-ranked Novak Djokovic.",
