Tennis Legend Roger Federer Has Announced His Retirement From The Sport At Age 41

Tennis champion, Tennis Federer, on Thursday, announced his retirement from the sport.

In a video, which he posted on his Instagram page, Federer revealed that next week’s Laver Cup in London will be his final ATP tennis event.

“I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour. This is a bittersweet decision, because I will miss everything the tour has given me. But at the same time, there is so much to celebrate,” he said. During his playing years, Federer won 20 Grand Slam singles titles.

Federer’s last appearance came at last year’s Wimbledon, where he reached the quarter-finals. His final Grand Slam triumph was at the 2018 Australian Open, when, aged 36, he became the second-oldest man to win a major singles title in the Open era.

He claimed 103 singles titles on the ATP tour and was world number one for 237 consecutive weeks between February 2004 and August 2008, which remains a record.

Federer’s decision follows a turbulent period for the Swiss star, who has undergone three knee surgeries in a desperate attempt to return to his former glories.

His injuries have limited his appearances on tour and he has played in just three of the 11 Grand Slams staged since the start of 2020.
