Roger Federer Retiring From Tennis

At the age of 41 and after winning 20 grand slam titles, Roger Federer decided to call it a career and retire from playing professional tennis.

Federer is ranked 3rd in all-time grand slam wins just behind his men’s tennis with rivals Rafael Nadal with 22 wins and Novak Djokovic with 21 wins.

He said he will still continue to play tennis but just not at the grand slam professional level. He is sent to play at the Laver Cup as Team Europe.

This is the second major multiple-time grand slam winner to retire this year. Serena Williams announced her retirement after the US Open this year. Williams has won 23 women’s grand slam titles.
