Roger Federer literally shocked the tennis world with a farewell letter announcing his retirement from tennis. Through his social media profiles Roger has announced that next week he will create the last big catwalk at the Laver Cup and then he will officially say goodbye to the world of tennis, the world that made him famous in this sport.
He wrote: "To my tennis family and beyond. Of all the gifts that tennis has given me over the years, the greatest is, without a doubt, that it has introduced me to people along the way: my friends, my opponents and above all the fans.
Today, I want to share some news with you. As everyone knows, the past three years have been a challenge for me in the form of injuries. I worked hard to get back, but my body sent me clear messages. Tennis has treated me better than I ever dreamed of, but I have to recognize the moment to end my professional career.
The Laver Cup in London next week will be my last ATP tournament. I will no longer participate in Grand Slams or tour tournaments. This was a bittersweet decision to make, because I will miss everything the tennis world has given me.
At the same time, there is so much to celebrate." In the video below, here are every single career title won by Roger Federer:
