Roger talks about his life after the retirement
Present at an event for Uniqlo and interviewed by the New York Times, the 20-time Grand Slam champion returned to the sensations he experienced after saying goodbye to tennis.He explained: “Life without the game, life without the fans and life without the show that has dominated my life for 25 years was definitely something I didn’t know how I was going to take.

For a long time I tried to go back and give myself another chance, to leave this sport healthy, but it just wasn’t feasible. But the good and bad thing about Covid and with my knee surgery, is that everything has started to slow down in the last three years, so it’s not like I come in after playing 100 games and then boom, it’s over.

In the end, I was relieved, I think, and happy to retire. It ended perfectly at the Laver Cup. I was surrounded by my biggest rivals, and my family and friends were there. To me it was like, ‘OK, I’m fine now.”Retirement allowed Roger Federer to expand his horizons.

From the co-chair at the Met Gala to the presence in the Royal Box at Wimbledon, passing through his appearance on stage at the Coldplay concert in Zurich, a new life has begun for the Swiss tennis player.He said: “I’ve always been strict and serious about being a professional athlete, but I would eat hamburgers, I would eat desserts, I would drink a glass of wine.

For me, eating a hamburger was nothing out of the ordinary, but this one looked perfect, so I I had to post a picture of it. I’m doing things that weren’t feasible when I was playing because it took too long.”
