Roger Federer at Wimbledon 2023, could not only be a utopia. The Swiss played his last career match at the Laver Cup alongside Rafael Nadal. The Swiss champion decided to greet all his fans in the Rod Laver event and was unable to hold back his tears at the end of the double that closed the Day 1 program of the well-known team event.
Roger explained: “The decision came at the beginning of the summer. I felt that my progress was not satisfactory, that my knee was not doing well. Then I did an ultrasound and saw that there was no more progress. I would have liked to have been able to return to Wimbledon next year, I really believed it, but then in the following weeks I still took some exams that showed no progress and it was there that I decided to say enough.
If I look at the last few years away from competitions, I have still done a lot of things with my family and my sponsors, I don’t want to completely distance myself from the sport that has given me everything. I have always told my wife Mirka that I would be more available to them at the end of my career and that is what I will do.“
