In the first trailer released a few months ago, however, the 42-year-old from Basel asks his fans: Ready?, while he is sitting on a desk. On the table, in front of him, the paper containing the words with which he declared to hang up his racket. The series, as mentioned, will most likely retrace the most important stages in the history and career of King Roger, the first player to reach 20 Grand Slam titles (then overtaking Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal), as well as the last moments highlights with the Laver Cup. There will certainly be moving and touching scenes, with his family as protagonists. In short, a documentary to further pay homage to the most beloved champion in the history of tennis. An emotional and nostalgic story for Roger, who bid farewell to tennis at the 2022 Laver Cup after more than 20 years of success.

Federer talked about the birth of the idea for the docu-series in a recent interview for GQ Sports.

"I don't know how to explain it. It was something I didn't want to do. It's like writing a book. I didn't want to write a book. I wasn't ready to write my story. So it was never an idea. Then, when the end approached, and once the Laver Cup was set, the question was: Do we want to document something? Maybe more for my story, for my children, for friends, coaches and my team. How about we film some stuff? Then at least we would have something, because we have almost no behind the scenes of my life because I never want anyone around. So they came and I said, "Well, you probably want to see before, during and after the match. It's super emotional, hard to watch.

I watch it with Mirka and Tony Godsick. And we think: Oh, my God, wow. And right after that we found ourselves making an hour and a half of film, as if it were the last 12 days of my life. I went to a screening the other day, it was tough. I cried like six times. I think there are many moments where you feel the suffering I was talking about. You see the end and there's this final point, but it's beautiful. But probably for me too, from an emotional point of view, it was hard. I wonder how the viewer will see it. But I think maybe it's very cool and for a lot of athletes it will be cool to see how I came out. We're talking about mental, emotional suffering. It goes through the body, literally. It's an experience that involves the whole body. It makes you say: Oh, my God," explained Federer.

We have to be ready for all the emotions we will have to feel from the releasing date of the docu-serie.
