Federer May Skip French Open For Child's Birth

The French Open could suffer the absence of seventeen-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer who has said he could skip the tournament to be with his wife when she gives birth again.

Federer said being with his wife when she gives birth is a top priority for him.

"It's a priority for me trying to be there, trying to support my wife."

The 32 year old, who has played in every Grand Slam since 2000, already has a set of twin with wife Mirka and is expecting a third child soon.

"I've played enough tennis matches. Missing a tournament or missing a match wouldn't change anything for me," the tennis legend said.

The French Open runs from 25 May to 8 June.
