Roger Federer will play his final match as a professional tennis player during the Laver Cup 2022, which begins on Friday (September 23) at The O2 venue in London, UK. Fans and players were waiting for his farewell performance on the tennis court during the Laver Cup after he announced his retirement from the professional tour.
Rafael Nadal, one of Federer's greatest opponents during his 24-year career, will be his partner in his final match. The duo will take against Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe.
Nadal and Federer have been bitter rivals on the court since 2004 in Miami. Nadal, then 17, defeated the then-22-year-old in straight sets (6-3, 6-3) to begin one of tennis' most bitter and storied rivalries.
Federer announced his retirement from tennis last week, capping off an illustrious career. The 41-year-old has 103 singles titles to his name and the third-most Grand Slam titles (20) among men's tennis players in history. He is only one point behind Novak Djokovic (21) and Rafael Nadal (22).
