The Swiss international and legendary tennis player, Roger Federer has drawn the curtain on his career and m confirmed his retirement from tennis on his official Twitter account on Thursday, September 15th, 2022.
From the tweet, he decided to call it quit following the disappointments of injuries and surgeries he has had to undergo in recent years that slowed thr pace of his career.
The tweet reads,
As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. I’ve worked hard to return to full competitive form. But I also know my body’s capacities and limits, and its message to me lately has been dear. I am 41 years old. I have played more than 1,500 matches over 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt, and now I must recognise when it is time to end my competitive career. The Laver Cup next week in London will be my final ATP event. I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour.
Federer is one of the greatest tennis player to that grace the sport . The Swiss has won 20 grand slam titles during his illustrious career.
