Brings Down The House
23 September 2022
In an emotional Friday night session at London's O2 Arena, Roger Federer ended his great career.
He finished his final match at 25 minutes after midnight and left the court just before 1 am in front of a capacity crowd in a sea of love, emotions, and music.
In his last match, Federer came agonizingly close to achieving the fairytale ending of triumph,
but he and his longtime friend and rival Rafael Nadal were unable to convert a match chance before falling to Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe 4-6, 7-6(2), 11-9 in a tight double.
Laver Cup 2022 is now set at 2-2 at the end of the first day, leaving plenty of room for drama throughout the weekend.
However, the focus of Friday's news was Federer and the closing act of a career that has made him one of the greatest athletes in the annals of any sport, not just tennis.
