The legendary Roger Federer won't be any anymore on a tennis court as far as the professional aspect of the game is concerned. On Friday, September 23, the 41-year-old bid goodbye to tennis after playing a doubles match with Spain's Rafael Nadal in the Laver Cup 2022.

Federer and Nadal lost the match to Team World's Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at Centre Court in a match that lasted almost two hours. Team World beat Team Europe 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 11-9 to make it 2-2 in the Laver Cup 2022.

The match went right to the wire where Federer and Nadal also got a match point to seal the fate of the encounter. However, they couldn't quite hold their nerve. Sock and Tiafoe showed a great amount of composure to come up trumps.

After the match, both Nadal and Federer broke down in tears, showing how much tennis meant to them.

The fans, in the meantime, lauded Federer for an incredible career for over two decades. The supporters poured in wishes for the legend from Switzerland.

One of the fans said that the game of tennis won't ever be the same with the enigmatic Federer on the court.

"Thank you for making the sport Great! Tennis will never be the same again! @rogerfederer," the fan wrote.

Another fan heaped praise on Federer for being an absolute throughout his career in professional tennis.

"What an incredible talent, so many memorable moments and always acting like a gentleman. Thank you for everything you did for the sport," the fan said.
