Over the past week, there has been nothing but talk of Roger Federer’s imminent retirement. The fans were all hoping for one last round in 2023, but the Swiss’s physical condition forced him to make a very difficult decision.

The former world number one will end his legendary career at the end of the Laver Cup, where he will play doubles only on Friday night (most likely with Rafael Nadal). The 41-year-old from Basel has undergone three knee surgeries in the past two and a half years and has never given up his desire to return to the field, demonstrating his unconditional love for the sport.

Earlier this summer, King realized that a return to the Tour would be impossible. “It is not only the knee, but the whole body that is subjected to tremendous pressure,” – this was stated by his historical coach Pierre Paganini in a recent interview.

20 Slams, 103 ATP titles and 28 Masters 1000 are just some of the numbers that made Master one of the greatest athletes of all time.

She doesn’t really enjoy watching me anymore, with all the injuries. “I kind of felt sorry for her,” Roger Federer said in a tweet written by Simon Graf, sports editor for the Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger. The decision was already made two months ago – a few days after Wimbledon in July.

“A few days after Wimbledon, in July. The knee isn’t coming up anymore. I asked myself: What’s the point? We’ve been on thin ice for so long. I know it’s the right decision, the only good decision,” Roger Federer said in a separate tweet by Graf.

Roger Federer said, “At first I was sad, then I pushed him away. Then came the process of writing the letter and telling everyone. It tore you a little bit, but it was also very good to me.” “Three or four weeks ago, I couldn’t imagine picking up a mic in the Laver Cup and talking about it.

And then there will be another party…. Because that’s always been important to me: I shouldn’t feel like a funeral, but a party,” Federer added. In the same article in Tages-Anzeiger, Federer touched on his children’s grief over his decision to retire, asking him if it meant he could not Travel to his course sites.

“They were very emotional,” Federer said. “Three in four cried. And they asked, ‘Shall we not go to Halle, or Wimbledon, or Indian Wells anymore?'”
