Will Retire From Tennis At The Laver Cup
23 Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has declared that the 2022 Laver Cup will be his final ATP competition.
Federer won his first grand slam in the year 2003 when he won the Wimbledon title.
The 41-year-old winner of 20 Grand Slam titles has been out of action since a quarter-final loss at Wimbledon in 2021
"As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries," Federer said in an 845-word statement posted on social media.
"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 clear. I am 41 years old.
"We will so miss the sight of you gracing our courts, but all we can say for now is thank you, for the memories and joy you have given to so many."
