Roger Federer He retires from tennis. At 41, one of the greatest tennis players in history decided to put an end to his brilliant career, which saw him winner of 20 Grand Slam tournaments and 103 ATP singles titles, Olympic medal and, beyond all statistics, owner of one unique style that has made him a tennis fan favorite for over 20 years of career.
The Swiss had been dragged by a knee injury that had operated on him in August 2021 and had kept him away from the circuit for more than a year. The most optimistic dreamed of seeing him on the Australian tour in early 2022, but the recovery has become too complex.
“When they operated on me, we already knew that I would progress little by little. Today I can say that it will take me a while longer. I just have to be patient. I am making steady progress,” he said in June.
At that moment, RF assured that his idea was to play with Laver and make his official return to the ATP circuit in Basel, his home, from 24 to 30 October. Those were the only two games he intended to play in this 2022.
Finally, through a letter and a video on his social networks, the Swiss has set the Laver Cup as the final date, which will be held next week in London.
