Rafael Nadal Tears Up Next To Roger Federer After His Final Professional Tennis Match at Laver Cup 2022

Roger Federer sheds tears after his final match during the 2022 Laver Cup at The O2 Arena on September 23, 2022 in London, England.

The 41-year-old tennis star announced he was retiring from the sport just last week, and that the competition game, between Team Europe and Team World would be his last.

Teammate Rafael Nadal, and a few others on the team, were even seen crying over it being Roger‘s last match.

Following the doubles match, Roger also got support from his wife, Mirka, and their children, Myla, Charlene, Leo and Lenny Federer.

Speaking with press after the game, Roger said it had been “a wonderful day. I told the guys I’m happy, I’m not sad. It feels great to be here, and I enjoyed tying my shoes one more time, and everything was the last time.”

“Funny enough, with all the matches, and having the guys, and being here with fans, family and friends – I didn’t feel the stress so much, even though I did think something was going to go. Pop a calf, or lock my back or something. I’m so happy to make it through, the match was great, I couldn’t be happier. It’s been wonderful,” he added.

Roger then spoke about his legacy in tennis: “I was just happy to play tennis, and spend time with my friends really, and it ends here. It has been a perfect journey and I would do it all over again.”

“It’s been great. It’s been so much fun. It’s been amazing.”

“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries,” the 41-year-old tennis star said. “I’ve worked hard to return to full competitive form. But I also know my body’s capacities and limits, and its message to me lately has been clear.

“I am 41 years old. I have played more than 1500 matches over 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt, and now I must recognize when it is time to end my competitive career,” Roger continued.
