Basel (Switzerland): World ace tennis player Roger Federer, who has 20 Grand Slam singles with him, announced his retirement from the game. He said that the Laver cup would be his final ATP tour event, IANS reported.

Federer, the 41-year-old veteran star, had stopped appearing for tournaments since Wimbledon 2021, after which he had his third knee surgery.

He is known for his serve and volley, and fans describe him as a "poetry in motion", NDTV reports.

In his statement on Twitter, he said, "Laver cup next month will be my final ATP tour event. I will not play any more Grand Slams or on the tour."

He further said, "I have worked hard to return to full competitive form. But I also know my body's capacity and limit. I am 41 years old and have played more than 1500 matches over 24 years. Tennis has treated me generously more than I ever would have dreamt, and I must recognise when I have to end my competitive career. I will play more tennis, of course, but not in Grand Slams and in tour. It's a bitter-sweet decision."

In Grand Slam singles titles, only the Spanish player Rafael Nadal and Serbia's Novak Djokovic, with 22 and 21 crowns, are above Federer, IANS reported.
