Dive In


I am 41-years-old, I have played more than 1,500 matches over 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamed and now I must recognize when it is time to end my competitive career.

That’s what Roger Federer said while announcing his retirement from professional tennis. We are too sad to add much more. You can watch his entire statement here. The Guardian has the reactions of other players. Insider has a lovely photo gallery of Federer over the years—paying tribute to his status as a fashion icon:)
