Swiss athlete Roger Federer, one of the best names in tennis history, announced that the Laver Cup, which will be held next week, will be the last tournament and he will say goodbye to tennis.
The 41-year-old athlete, who has 20 Grand Slam championships, said in a statement on his Instagram account, “As many of you know, the last three years have been filled with injuries and surgeries. I’ve worked hard to somehow get back in shape. But I knew my body’s capacity and my limits. His message to me recently was very valuable. I am 41 years old. I played more than 1,500 matches in 24 years. Tennis has been more generous to me than I had ever imagined. Now I realize that my professional career must come to an end. The Laver Cup, the ATP tournament in ALondra, will be my last tournament. I will play tennis again in the future but it will definitely not be Grand Slams or tournamentsHe announced his decision to retire.
