Tennis icon Roger Federer announces retirement at 41

20-time major winner Roger Federer has announced that he is retiring from professional tennis.

Roger, who turned 41 in August, hasn't played tennis since last year's Wimbledon tournament due to knee surgery.

In a statement, Roger Federer revealed he plans to retire from tennis after Laver Cup in London.

Roger Federer, who has had 3 knee surgeries since 2020,

had been initially scheduled to play at the ATP 500 event in Basel and at the  Laver Cup.

But Roger Federer told he is listening to his body and that's the reason why he feels retiring from tennis is the right thing to do.

"The Laver Cup next week in London will be my final ATP event."

"I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour."- Federer said in his statement
