Roger Federer announces his retirement from tennis – Statement

Tennis icon Roger Federer announced his retirement from tennis on Thursday, saying that the next weeks Laver Cup will be his final ATP tournament. The 41-year-old winner of 20 Grand Slam titles has been out of action since a quarter-final loss at Wimbledon in 2021 before undergoing another bout of knee surgery.<br /><br />In a statement released on his official <a href="">twitter </a>account, Federer wrote, " As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. Ive 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 recognize 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.”
