Roger Federer, 41-year-old Swiss tennis player who owns 20 Grand Slams, announced on September 15 that he would retire after attending the 2022 Laver Cup at the end of this month.
Writing on his personal page, Federer set a time to retire from professional tennis: “Tennis has brought me many interesting things. In the past 3 years, I myself have always struggled. I was injured and took a long time to heal. I worked hard to get back to my best, but realized that my body was at its limit.”
Federer is a player in the “Big Three” group and is known as the “king of the grass” because he holds a record of 8 Wimbledon championships. After a long battle with a knee injury and burdened with age, the Swiss “living legend” has lost his form.
The 2021 season is the last time Federer has attended professional tournaments in the ATP Tour system, including Roland Garros and Wimbledon, but all “empty hands” leave.
2019 was the last time the Swiss tennis player won the ATP Tour tournament championship titles, including the Miami Masters championship.
In more than 24 years of playing professionally, Federer has competed in more than 1,500 matches, winning 103 singles titles.
“The Laver Cup in London will be my last ATP tournament. I will still play tennis in the future, of course, not at the Grand Slams or the ATP Tour,” Federer added.
