Roger Federer to retire from tennis after the Laver Cup next week
Roger Federer will retire from tennis after the Laver Cup in London next week.
The 41-year-old has not competed since losing to Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon last year.
With his artistry and grace, he won 20 Grand Slam singles titles and re-defined a sport.
His retirement comes on the heels of Serena Williams’ likely retirement and the beginning of the end of the golden era.
He’ll say his final goodbyes in London, where he first captivated the tennis world and beyond.
Rafael Nadal, on the other hand, calls it a “sad day for me personally and for sports around the world.”
He also holds the world record for the most consecutive weeks at number one.
He was dubbed the “champion of champions” by Billie Jean King.
