LSwiss tennis player Roger Federer will play the last match of his career on Friday in a doubles match where he will be associated with his great rival Rafael Nadal at the Laver Cup in London, organizers announced on Thursday.

The Swiss will play against Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe in the evening before ending his prestigious career at 41.

Six days after announcing his upcoming retirement, the player with 20 Grand Slam titles chose, at 41, this team match between Europe and the rest of the world, in London, to exchange his last balls in competition.

On February 2, 2004, he became the 23rd world N.1 in history in the ATP ranking. He occupied this position for a total of 310 weeks, during six periods, the last time on June 26, 2018
