Tennis world waves goodbye to legend Roger Federer: “We’re going to miss the way you decorated our fields”

Next week after the Laver Cup, Roger Federer – at 41 – will hang his tennis racket. The Swiss won no less than 20 grand slam tournaments and was number one for 310 weeks. A legend, according to many the best tennis player ever. And so the tennis world waved him off en masse.

“Roger, where do we start?” Wimbledon wonders. The grand slam tournament that he won no less than eight times. “It has been a privilege to experience your journey and see how you have become a real champion. We’re going to miss the way you graced our fields. All we can say now is thank you. For the memories and the joy you gave us.”

Andy Roddick, arguably his biggest rival in Federer’s early days, writes that it was an “honour” to share the tennis court with the Swiss. Canadian Denis Shapovalov, the number 24 in the world, calls Federer “a role model”. The retired Milos Raonic says Federer has done “more for tennis than anyone else”. Juan Martin Del Potro believes that “tennis will never be the same again”.
