Roger Federer makes retirement claim as he continues recovery from injury


    Roger Federer acknowledged that he knows that “a perfect retirement does not exist” as he contemplates his own future in the tennis world. The sporting icon turned 40 this year and a string of relentless injuries have restricted him to only 13 matches over the past two seasons.

    It is a sign that the Swiss’ extraordinary career is coming to an end, after years of unprecedented success in the sport.

    He was the first to reach 20 Grand Slam titles, but hasn’t won one since the 2018 Australian Open and has since been caught up by the other members of the ‘big three’, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

    A run to the semi-finals in Melbourne last year led to the knee injury which kept Federer out for more than 12 months, and this summer he reached the last eight at Wimbledon before his body let him down again.

    All this enforced time away from the court has led to ever-increasing speculation that he will be retiring soon, though Federer remains hopeful of a return to the tour in 2022.
