In 2003, Federer won the title at Wimbledon, which was his first Grand Slam tournament victory. Since then, he has won six titles at the Australian Open, one title at the French Open, eight titles at Wimbledon, and five titles at the US Open.

Roger Federer, a legend in the sport of tennis and the first male player to win 20 Grand Slam titles, has announced his intention to step away from the sport following the Laver Cup in 2022. Through a post on his Twitter handle, Roger Federer informed his followers of his decision. In 2003, Federer won the championship at Wimbledon, which was his first Grand Slam tournament victory. Since then, he has won six championships at the Australian Open, one win at the French Open, eight titles at Wimbledon, and five titles at the US Open. He has struggled for a significant amount of time with a knee injury.

According to a statement that was published on his Twitter account, he will compete in his final ATP match at the Laver Cup in London the following week.

Since losing in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2021, when he was 41 years old and had already won 20 Grand Slam titles, the 20-time Grand Slam champion has been sidelined due to knee issues that required additional surgery. After Serena Williams announced her retirement from professional tennis, Roger Federer made this announcement. When Serena retired, she held the record for the second most Grand Slam titles won by a woman in the history of the sport (23).

After his primary competitors Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer currently sits in third place in terms of the total number of Grand Slam titles won.
