Madrid, Spain (SportsNetwork.com) - Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Madrid Open to be with his wife, Mirka, in the time leading up to the birth of the couple's third child.

"I've decided to withdraw from Madrid to be with my wife Mirka during these next few exciting weeks for our family," Federer said on his webpage on Tuesday. "I apologize to my fans and hope to be back in Madrid next year. I'll be training near my home, and am excited to rejoin the Tour soon!"

Federer, a three-time winner in Madrid, is the second top four player to pull out of the tournament in three days, with world No. 2 Novak Djokovic announcing his withdrawal on Sunday due to a right arm injury.

The Federers already have four-year-old twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva.
