Novak Djokovic joined the numerous tributes paid to Roger Federer after the announcement of the Swiss tennis player’s withdrawal from the ATP circuit.
Throughout their respective careers, the Serbian and Federer fought numerous duels, with a 27-win advantage for Djoko (and 23 for the Swiss).
“Roger, it is very difficult to see this day come and put into words all that we have shared in this sport together. Over a decade of incredible moments and games to remember. Your career has been the true meaning of excellence and leadership with integrity and knowing how to stand. It is an honor to meet you on and off the court and I know that this new stage will hold great things for you, for Mirka (woman), your children and everyone who loves you», reads the message written by Djokovic on social media.
