Breaking: Federer announces retirement – Tennis – Men

The holder of 20 Grand Slam titles, Roger Federer, announced the end of his professional career. The 41-year-old magician with a racket in hand said that next week’s Laver Cup will be his last.

Here is the Maestro’s farewell message:

“To all my tennis family and beyond,

Of all the gifts tennis has given me over the years, the greatest, without a doubt, have been the people I’ve met along the way: friends, rivals, and most of all, fans who give their lives.

I want to share some news with you all.

As many of you know, the past three years have met with many challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. I’ve been working hard to get back in good shape, but I also know my body’s limitations.

My body’s message is very clear. I am 41 years old. I have played more than 1500 games in 24 years. Tennis has been more generous to me than I ever dreamed of, so now I have to realize that it is time to end my professional career.

The Laver Cup in London next weekend will be my last ATP tournament. Naturally, I will continue to play tennis in the future, but it will not be at the Grand Slam level or the men’s tour.”
