To see my wife who has not spoken to the media for almost 15 years be so vulnerable and cry by my side is truly incredible. It’s been really hard for her for years.

I am very honored to have been able to live such a career and to have been able to share my last moments as I did, showing this fragility to everyone is ultimately all that matters, it shows that it is true and sincere.

In addition, I saw my children with Mirka and my parents in the bleachers, and all the legends that were present for my last moments, it was really intense.”

Speaking with The Guardian before the 2024 Wimbledon Championships, Hubert Hurkacz – finalist in Halle last week – talked about his famous win over Roger Federer at Wimbledon in 2021: "I was definitely stressed out beforehand. I was quite confident in my game at the time, I knew I was playing good grass tennis at Wimbledon and especially after beating Medvedev in five sets.

I felt like I was in a good place and I was just trying to do my best and compete. It was stressful, but also very exciting. When I was a kid, I always admired Roger, he was my idol. He won so many times at Wimbledon, that having the chance to play with him there on this unique track, was something I always wanted to do.”

Federer’s career officially ended at the 2022 Laver Cup, where he played doubles alongside his friend and former rival Rafael Nadal.
