Roger Federer has made the decision to permanently leave the sport that has made him renowned since the early 2000s. He will play in the Laver Cup in London, the competition he founded, for one last time next weekend.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion is regarded as a role model for many athletes and a true legend of the sport because of his personality, playing style, and many other qualities. All extremely moving, such as the letter the Swiss Maestro wrote and released to declare his formal departure.
He is the inspirational speaker that inspired many people to become tennis enthusiasts. The end of a career that many people had thought would never arrive, despite the fact that the Swiss had already started to get his fans used to missing out on the important ATP Tour events.
His retirement was ultimately unavoidable as his body started to lose its ability to support certain rhythms in recent years. The Swiss played their final match on the ATP tour in 2021 at Wimbledon. In that instance, despite being in less than ideal physical condition, Federer was still able to push himself all the way to the quarterfinals before being soundly defeated by Hubert Hurkacz.
Everyone was fantastic, Roger Federer said in appreciation.
The Basel champion wanted to convey a message of gratitude to everyone on Friday night: “It was lovely to announce the news while being surrounded by my parents, Mirka, and my mother.
Who would have anticipated that the trip would take so long. Just amazing!” He made this comment and shared some important photographs. Roger, who is getting ready for the official farewell ceremony at the O2 Arena in London, received a lot of responses and hearts in response to the post on the various social media platforms.
Everyone anticipates the Swiss player to play at least a doubles match. If everything is confirmed, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic will have to be chosen as the partner. Read the touching post Roger shared on his Instagram account below.
