Carla Suarez Navarro: "Roger Federer leaves a great legacy"

Carla Suarez Navarro analyzed Roger Federer's enormous impact on tennis and sport in general. Former Spanish tennis player: "Every sports fan loves Roger Federer. This is his main legacy. It is difficult to say whether or not he is the greatest ever, there is no objective answer to this question.

What is undeniable is that Roger has changed tennis and sport. Anyone who approaches a sport, whatever it is, dreams of having the elegance and style of Federer. He seemed to make no effort on the court. We all want to be like him." Ivan Ljubicic retraced the last phase of the Maestro's career: "When Roger returned to the circuit last year, he was never at 100%.

There was not a single tournament or training in which everything went well. For him continuing meant winning tournaments, not a few games. Continuing to play as he did in 2021 was not an option for him. At the same time, it was hard to accept that it was over."

Roger Federer's Farewell

Roger Federer greeted tennis played at the Laver Cup, which took place at the O2 Arena in London from 23-25 September.

The Swiss champion, who hadn't set foot on the pitch since Wimbledon 2021, played his last match alongside Rafael Nadal against Americans Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock. At the end of the match, the 41-year-old from Basel received a splendid tribute and was unable to hold back tears (as did Rafael Nadal).

The image of Roger and Rafa hand in hand went around the world in just a few seconds and went viral. The King calmly accepted the idea of retiring, being aware that he could no longer compete at the highest levels. His right knee has plagued him for the past two and a half years, forcing him to undergo as many as three operations.

The Maestro never gave up hope of returning to the circuit, but at the beginning of this summer he had to accept reality.
