oger Federer lifts the curtain on his illustrious career with a very special match at the Laver Cup in London tonight.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion announced his retirement from tennis last week via a post on social media: “To my tennis family and beyond. Of all the gifts tennis has given me over the years, the greatest, without a doubt, have been the people I’ve met along the way: my friends, my competitors and above all the fans who bring to this sport. . Today I want to share some news with all of you,” he said.

“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. I worked hard to get back to full competitive form.

“But I also know the capabilities and limitations of my body, and the message it has sent to me lately has been clear. I’m 41 years old. I’ve played over 1,500 games in 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever dreamed of, and now I have to recognize when it’s time to end my competitive career.

“The Laver Cup next week in London will be my last ATP event. I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but not in Grand Slams or on the tour.

But, he will first team up with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray as Europe take on Team World.
