Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal React to Roger Federer’s Retirement

After Roger Federer announced his decision to retire from competitive tennis at the end of the month, two of his foremost competitors and rivals took to social media to congratulate him on a remarkable career.

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, the only two players with more Grand Slam championships than Federer, penned touching tributes to the tennis legend after he shared that he would make his final ATP Tour appearance at the Laver Cup in London next week.

“Roger it’s hard to see this day and put into words all that we’ve shared in this sport together,” Djokovic wrote on Instagram Friday. “Over a decade of incredible moments and battles to think back on. Your career has set the tone for what it means to achieve excellence and lead with integrity and poise. It’s an honour to know you on and off court, and for many more years to come.
