Swiss tennis player Roger Federer announced on Twitter that the upcoming Laver Cup, which will be held from September 23 to 25 at London’s O2 Arena, will be his last career tournament.
Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer says goodbye to his career.
Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Federer has been on hiatus for a long time since last summer due to knee problems. Since then, he missed the Olympic tournament in Tokyo and all subsequent Grand Slam tournaments.
“As you know, I have had problems in the last three years. I suffered injuries and underwent operations. I worked hard to be able to give back in the best shape. However, I know the capacity and limits of my body,” Federer wrote.
The Swiss already celebrated his 41st birthday and played more than 1,500 matches during his 24 years in top tennis. “Tennis has been more generous to me than I ever dreamed. However, I found that the moment for the end had come. The Laver Cup next week in London will be my last ATP event,” added Federer.
In his over four-minute farewell speech, he was the first to thank his wife and native of Bojnice, Mirka Federerová. “I would especially like to thank my wonderful wife who lived with me every single minute. She warmly took care of me before every final, she watched countless matches even during eight months of pregnancy,” said the Swiss.We pay attention News, discussions, comments… Join us and follow our FB page Šport.Pravda.sk
