Roger Federer Announces Retirement

World of sport reacts to Roger Federer’s retirement

Roger Federer of Switzerland has announced his retirement. The news came as he was preparing for his farewell tournament, the BNP Paribas Masters in Indian Wells.

The Swiss player said he is “disappointed” to be leaving the sport at a time when he is still very much loved.

Federer’s current team mates, the Swiss federation and his coach, Stefan Edberg, expressed their support in a joint statement.

Federer’s retirement was expected to happen at his 33rd birthday on February 23. With five Grand Slam titles, 15 Grand Slam finals, 12 Grand Slam semi-finals and 17 Grand Slam final appearances, he ranks third in the history of Grand Slam matches played.

Federer’s retirement is a great personal loss to the sport. And to tennis, which he has always been and remains an important part of.

He has given his all since his first Grand Slam final in 2005 at Wimbledon, where he lost to Novak Djokovic. He has been an incredible team player, playing on the same team with Federer and Roger Federer and taking on the role of a leader for Federer and for the Swiss. He remains hugely popular in the world of sport, being regularly voted as the greatest tennis player of all time by more than 1,000 of his peers, with more than 3,000 of his countrymen having voted for him as the greatest men’s player in history.

Federer retired because he decided he could no longer carry on playing tennis at the level that he had become accustomed to. Federer has achieved greatness in all his majors. Now he is setting new standards by retiring as a five-time champion.

“This is not the end,” Federer said. “This is just the end of the beginning.”

Now, I just feel very happy to have the opportunity to retire on a high note. And I’m satisfied to give something back to the sport
