Tennis Star Roger Federer Announces Retirement

By Brad Perry Sep 15, 2022 | 10:52 AM

Professional tennis star Roger Federer has announced plans to end his competitive career.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner said that next week’s Laver Cup tournament in London will be his last.

In a post on Twitter, the 41-year-old said injuries have caught up with him, and it is time to retire.

“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in form of injuries and surgeries. I’ve worked hard to return to full competitive form,” Federer wrote in the post.

“But I also know my body’s capacities and limits, and its message to me lately has been clear.

“I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour.”

Federer noted he has played more than 1,500 matches over the past 24 years.

The Swiss player has won 103 ATP singles titles, including 20 Grand Slam singles titles, eight men’s singles Wimbledon titles, and five men’s singles US Open titles.
