Roger Federer retires from sports after next week’s Laver Cup

Roger Federer, the great Swiss tennis player, announced his retirement from the sport on Thursday, saying next week’s Laver Cup will be his last ATP tournament.

“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. I’ve been working hard to get back to full competitive form. But I also know my body’s capabilities and limits, and the message I’ve been carrying lately has been dear to me. I’m 41 years old,” Federer said on Instagram.

“I’ve played over 1,500 games in 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever dreamed, and now I have to recognize when it’s time to end my competitive career.

“The Laver Cup next week in London will be my last ATP event. I will of course play more tennis in the future, but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour.”
