Roger Federer: "Serena Williams, please come back!"

Twenty-three-time Grand Slam champion, icon inside and outside the court, ruler of three different generations and a source of inspiration for tennis for the last twenty-five years. A big THANKS to Serena Williams for what she has made us live in these years is at least a duty.

The Queen hailed the Game, losing an epic match to Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round of the 2022 US Open. She finishes 7-5 6-7 (4) 6-1 after more than two hours of play, between the surreal silence that anticipates the end and the roar that accompanies the most mocking of epilogues.

Any word would be too redundant: the sporting career of the greatest tennis player of all time has simply come to an end. Right before the match, a video of Roger Federer arrived to celebrate Serena.

Roger to Serena

The Swiss Maestro told to the Queen: "Hey Serena, I'm Roger here.

I wanted to congratulate you on a truly amazing career. You know what you have achieved. I know what you have done and I know and you know it was just amazing. It is probably with mixed feelings that you are leaving this wonderful sport that has given you everything and more.

I wish you all the best for your family and your fans, and I am one of them, we will miss you!" In the video of tributes to the winner of 23 Grand Slam titles, Federer went on to talk about the first of these, won in 1999 in Flushing Meadows in the final against Martina Hings: "I think back to '99 at the US Open when you played against Martina Hingis.

I stayed up late to see you fight and that was the start of a career that has been incredible." A greeting, however, which also hides a request from the Swiss champion, rethink and return to tennis: "We will always welcome you with open arms and we will always be happy to see you again; so please come back.

And for now, enjoy this moment, enjoy these weeks at the US Open. I think of you and you have all my respect and I wish you all the best for the future. Take care of yourself, Serena!"
