Adored by some, respected by all, Roger Federer This Friday he put an end to almost 25 years of an exceptional tennis career, with a final match together with his great rival and friend Rafael Nadal, in the Laver Cup in London, which they ended up losing.
In this latest meeting with Nadal, who ended up losing to Americans Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 11-9, Federer relived for the last time all those pre-match routines he loved and hated at the same time.
And in the midst of that feeling, on social networks they are charging the Swiss for an unexpected gesture with Tiafoe.
Everything, because according to what they point out on social networks, practically “I erase it”.

Unexpected gesture of ‘Your Majesty’
At the end of the game, at the O2 in London, Federer broke down in tears and hugged all his teammates from Europe.
Then, he approached the place where his rivals were.
There, he merged into a hug with John McEnroe, a historic American tennis player.
Precisely, as seen in the record of the moment, Frances Tiafoe approaches Federer to greet him, after the tough game.
However, although the American is located on the visual radar of the Swiss, Federer follows long.
“We would like to play forever. I love being on the court, I love playing against these guys, I love to travel. It has never been difficult for me, whether I win or learn from losing, everything has been perfect, I have loved my career”, Federer said in the preview.
“Everyone has to leave the competition at some point. It has really been an adventure, tremendous. And for that, I am extremely grateful,” he concluded.
