ATP tournament: Roger Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam victor, arrived in London on Sunday for the Laver Cup, his final match as a professional tennis player. The legendary Swiss tennis player announced his retirement from competitive tennis last Thursday, stating that the next Laver Cup in September will be his final ATP event. On September 22, the tennis legend is anticipated to start his final farewell with a team Europe practise. He will compete in the official tournament, which will take place from September 23 to 25, alongside tennis legends Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray, as well as rising stars Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Federer published a message announcing his retirement on Twitter. Over the course of his illustrious career, he has amassed 1,251 victories overall and 103 ATP singles titles. Additionally, Federer has amassed 20 Grand Slam victories, which includes an unprecedented eight Wimbledon men’s singles trophies.
“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. This is a bittersweet decision because I will miss everything the tour has given me. But at the same time, there is so much to celebrate. I consider myself one of the most fortunate people on earth,” Roger Federer wrote in his retirement letter.
