The 41-year-old won 103 titles in his glittering career and spent a record 310 weeks, 237 of which were consecutive, as world number one. He became the first male player to win 20 Grand Slams, and his last Major was at the Australian Open in 2018.
The last time he participated in a Grand Slam at Wimbledon was in 2021, where he suffered a quarterfinal loss at the hands of Hubert Hurkacz. And after retiring from the game, the Basel-born tennis star is spending more time with his wife, Mirka, and their four children.
It seems any hope of Federer playing Wimbledon again is dead, but the prospect of having such an informed and insightful player providing analysis at future tournaments will no doubt excite fans concerned about the future of tennis.
