In September 2022, Roger announced his retirement.
On Sept. 15, Roger announced his retirement from high-level professional tennis.
"As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries," Roger shared in a lengthy post on his social media accounts. "I've worked hard to return to full competitive form. But I also know my body's capacities and limits, and its message to me lately has been clear."
"I am 41 years old. I have played more than 1500 matches over 24 years," he continued. "Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt, and now I must recognize when it is time to end my competitive career."
Roger announced that the Laver Cup — which begins on Sept. 23, 2022 — would be his final Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) event. He added he intends to keep playing tennis, "but just not in Grand Slams or on the tour."
"This is a bittersweet decision because I will miss everything the tour has given me," Roger stated. "But at the same time, there is so much to celebrate. I consider myself one of the most fortunate people on Earth. I was given a special talent to play tennis, and I did it at a level that I never imagined, for much longer than I ever thought possible."
"The last 24 years on tour have been an incredible adventure. When it sometimes feels like it went by in 24 hours, it has also been so deep and magical that it seems as if I've already lived a full lifetime. I have had the immense fortune to play in front of you in over 40 different countries. I have laughed and cried, felt joy and pain, and most of all, I have felt incredibly alive."
Roger thanked many in his retirement announcement, including his competitors on the tennis court: "I was lucky enough to play so many epic matches that I will never forget. ... We pushed each other, and together we took tennis to new levels."
"Finally, to the game of tennis: I love you and will never leave you," Roger concluded.
