Roger Federer officially retired from professional tennis for about two months, ending a truly splendid career in the ATP Tour. In an event sponsored by UNIQLO, the Swiss champion was able to show once again his great love for the sport that has made him famous all over the world.
Over the weekend, the Basel native flew to Japan for a demonstration, in which he took to the court to hit some balls together with home favorite Kei Nishikori and many small children who undoubtedly made their dream come true.

Roger closed his amazing career by winning 20 Slam titles (he was the first man to get at least 20 Major, before being overcame by Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic), 8 Wimbledon titles (record) and 6 ATP Finals (record).
Here are some videos of the initiative, disseminated on the various UNIQLO social channels.
