“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. I have worked hard to regain full competitive form. But I also know the capabilities and limitations of my body, and his message to me has been dear to me lately. I’m 41,” Federer said on Instagram.

“I’ve played over 1,500 matches in 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever dreamed, and now I have to recognize when it’s time to end my competitive career.
“The Laver Cup next week in London will be my last ATP event. I will play more tennis in the future, of course, but not in Grand Slams or on the tour.”
To my tennis family and beyond, With Love, Roger https://t.co/1UISwK1NIN
