“A genius, unique in the history of tennis and an example for any athlete,” wrote Messi.
“All the best in your new stage, we will miss seeing you on the court making us enjoy”. Eurosport expert Mats Wilander is sad about the departure of one of the biggest players from the tennis scene.

“My feeling about Roger not playing again or not being able to see him live again, in proper competitive matches, is very sad,” said Wilander
“I was hoping that he might have another three or four events in him.

But at the same time, I think when we see the level that the game has gone to in the last couple of years, maybe he realises and we should realise that it's nearly impossible to get back to that level as 40, 41 year old.
“So I guess yes, and of course, sad.

But at the same time, I think I want to celebrate the fact that Roger Federer took our game to the very top of all sports, of professional athleticism, because Roger Federer was not only the greatest tennis player at a time of all time, he also was elected one of the greatest athletes in the world for a year or two.
