Roger Federer‘s farewell was a very emotional night for everyone with every person present in the O2 Arena getting in tears seeing the Swiss maestro bid adieu even though he did not have a fairytale end to his career where he lost his final doubles match at Laver Cup in 2022 and even lost the final team event tournament.

Federer‘s farewell was memorable in many ways since he was joined by his arch-rivals in his final moments and stood along with them as he is the first of the Big 4 to retire from the competitive sport. Both the team members carried the Swiss maestro on their shoulders to make him feel like a ling. Post-retirement, he would love to keep playing matches but anymore as a Pro and also stated that he will not be a ghost from tennis.

Roger Federer is hailed as one of the greatest tennis players with 103 ATP singles titles including his 20 Grand Slam singles titles. He has etched his name in the history of tennis as he is the first men’s player to win 20 Grand Slam titles in the Open era. He was happy with the way it ended and has already spoken of plans to do commentary at Wimbledon if given a chance.

His legacy and contribution to the sport are exemplary and is known for his gracious and elegance on the court. His journey from a ballboy in Swiss Indoors to becoming a legendary player with so many achievements through his career of 24 years is a true example of patience, hard work, grit, and determination.
