After a lengthy battle to recover from knee injuries, Roger Federer, who made history by becoming the first man to win 20 Grand Slam trophies in tennis, announced his retirement from sport on Thursday.

Federer tried to make a comeback in 2018 following two knee operations in 2020. He made it as far as the fourth round of the French Open before retiring, and then he lost to Hubert Hurkacz 6-3, 7-6, 6-0 in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. After his loss to Hubert, Federer announced he had another knee issue and needed a third operation, which would keep him out of training for several months. Federer was expected to play several competitive matches this fall to prepare for the 2023 season, but rumors started to surface during the recent U.S. Open that he was still unable to reach his full potential.

Federer announced on social media,  “I also know my body’s capacities and limits, and its message to me lately has been clear… Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt, and now I must recognize that it is time to end my competitive career.”

Federer doesn’t intend to quit the sport entirely. The Laver Cup, which begins in London the following week, is the last Association of Tennis Professionals competition he will play in. He also intends to continue competing, just not in Grand Slam competitions or on the ATP tour.
