Emotional Federer thoroughly enjoyed his last match


Roger Federer thoroughly enjoyed his last tennis match. The 41-year-old Swiss played a double game on the side of Rafael Nadal in the Laver Cup tournament. Although the two tennis icons narrowly lost to Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe, according to Federer it was an unforgettable farewell.

“I thought it was a beautiful day. I also just told the boys that I am happy and not sad. It feels great to be here. I have enjoyed playing again. This was exactly what I was hoping for beforehand “, said Federer, who was overcome with emotions during the interview on the track. He thanked his wife Mirka (“she gave me permission to continue playing tennis, she is great”), his parents (“we always blame my mother for everything, because without her I would not have been here”) and the audience at The O2 in London.

The 41-year-old Swiss played his first match in more than a year at the Laver Cup. Due to persistent knee complaints, the twenty-time grand slam winner has now stopped playing tennis. “It was an amazing journey. I never expected to have such a career. I used to be just happy to play tennis. And now it ends here. I would do it all over again, it was a perfect trip.” Federer said through tears. His long-time rival and friend Nadal did not keep it dry either. British singer Ellie Goulding sang her hit Still Falling For You at the end.
