“It has been a perfect trip”

What do you say when there are no words? Roger Federer said goodbye to tennis at the Laver Cup, albeit with a defeat, but accompanied by Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard broke down in tears at the farewell of his friend, rival and colleague, so the emotion was reflected in each person who attended the O2 Arena.

Roger Federer himself was moved to tears, those that we saw when he won each of his 20 Grand Slam titles. ‘His Majesty of him’ never kept anything from him and through his feelings, he transmitted to us a love of tennis that will never go away.

At the end of his last match as a professional tennis player, Federer gave an emotional speech in which he thanked all those who supported him. In addition, he recalled that he never imagined creating such a great legacy in tennis, because he was just a boy who wanted to have fun.

We’ll get through this somehow, right? I told the guys we had a great day. I am happy, not sad. it’s great to be here, the stress was not felt. Playing with Rafa on the same team and having the others here… Thanks.

Is incredible. I didn’t want to feel alone out there. Saying goodbye like that made me feel like I’m part of a team. It feels like a celebration to me and it’s exactly how I wanted it to happen, so thank you. It wasn’t supposed to happen like this. I was just happy to play tennis and spend time with my friends.. It has been a perfect trip, I would do it again“.
