Default Nice gesture by Roger Federer in Hamburg

Was getting ready for work and had The Tennis Channel on in the background. They just showed an excerpt of Roger Federer, with the tournament director, on center court in Hamburg explaining to the crowd why he withdrew from the tournament.

He spoke in German and there was not a translation, but the TTC commentator said that Roger said that he had a very exhausting semi-final and final in Roma and that he wasn't able to compete at the level he wanted. A class act by one of our sport's ambassadors.
