近日,瑞士网球名将费德勒(Roger Federer),宣布了退休重磅消息。9月15日,他在社交媒体上通过录音宣布退役,本周在英国伦敦举行的拉沃杯(Laver Cup),将是他24年职业生涯中最后一场比赛。

I think in my world that I grew up in Switzerland, education always comes first and sports wasn't really a way of life.

But then I remember playing badminton or ping pong or tennis, you know, in the backyard of my friend's house and we were like, "and the winner of Wimbledon is Roger Federer!" I'd like go down to my knees and pretend holding up a trophy.

So I think I was dreaming of winning Wimbledon.

Playing against a wall, playing doubles with my parents, playing doubles with my friends, playing catch into the night, realizing that tennis had so much more to it than just hitting a ball.

I also played football, never looked back, I always enjoyed it, but eventually I had to take a decision if it was gonna be football or tennis.

Thankfully I chose tennis.

My first ever match, I lost 6-0, 6-0.

I heard some rumors that maybe, sort of, the local federation, they were like "well, maybe he's not that good like we thought he was." I kept on practising hard.

I started playing more tournaments.

I started to become very successful also even as a junior, at least in my area.
