Roger Federer’s Retirement at the 2022 Laver Cup

By Jeff Stinger

The ATP Tour will bid adieu to one of the most remarkable men’s singles players of all time, as Roger Federer will be playing in his final ATP Tour event this week at the 2022 Laver Cup. The tournament in London this week is a relatively friendly affair, which shows that King Roger is already past the point of having to prove himself as the one true ruler of the tennis courts.

Nitrobetting is ready to volley the latest tennis news, odds, and updates all year round. This time, let’s take a closer look at Roger Federer’s farewell tournament at the 2022 Laver Cup and the resounding impact that Federer has made throughout his decorated professional tennis career.

Roger Federer’s Retirement at the 2022 Laver Cup

The Swiss Superstar’s Sensational Legacy

Roger Federer made his debut on the ATP Tour way back in 1998 and, within a span of about a year, was already a top 100 men’s singles player in the scene. It wouldn’t be until 2003 when the Basel native would win his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, which is one of his eight victories at Wimby and a record for most wins at the tournament that still stands to date.

In total, Federer has 20 Grand Slam wins (third all-time), with six victories at the Australian Open (second-most in the Open Era) and five wins at the US Open (tied for most in the OE). He also bagged six ATP Finals titles; a record that he still holds and with no immediate threat to challenge for that distinction in sight.

Simply put, Federer’s spectacular success makes him one of the most celebrated and beloved champions on the ATP Tour whom many consider the best ever to play the game of tennis.

Leaving the Game at the Laver Cup

Not only is Federer an unparalleled tennis savant, but he’s also one of the classiest players to ever grace the tennis courts. In fact, he opted to make his final tournament not just about him, as his impending farewell in the annual doubles tourney at the 2022 Laver Cup goes to show that he does not need any more singles wins to further cement his legacy as one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

Making matters even more appealing at the Team Europe vs. Team World tourney in London this week is that Federer is paired up with his long-time rival Rafael Nadal, who recently overtook Federer and Novak Djokovic as the overall leader in Grand Slam victories earlier this year with 22.

Nadal’s sheer dominance at Roland Garros limited Federer to just one French Open win throughout the latter’s career. However, the two will set their differences aside at the Laver Cup and are looking to put on a great show honoring the Swiss Legend’s last hurrah.
