Novak Djokovic's classy act for Roger Federer after bombshell retirement



Novak Djokovic has sent a classy message to his rival Roger Federer after the Swiss maestro announced his retirement from tennis after the Laver Cup.



Federer’s announcement that he will play his last game at the ATP Laver Cup event, which starts next week, sparked an outpouring of praise and tributes from around the world.

The 41-year-old took tennis to new heights and will be remembered for his class and charisma on and off the court, but also his elegant playing style that captured the hearts of tennis purists.




More than 19 years after winning his first grand slam title at Wimbledon in 2003, which set him on the road to be being one of the greatest players of all time, Federer took to social media to announce that his career had come to an end.

His greatest rival, Rafa Nadal, was quick to send a heartwarming message to his friend after the sad announcement.




And now, Djokovic has joined in on the chorus of praise and paid tribute to the legend that transcended the sport of tennis.

“Roger it’s hard to see this day and put into words all that we’ve shared in this sport together,” Djokovic said of Federer.




“Over a decade of incredible moments and battles to think back on. Your career has set the tone for what it means to achieve excellence and lead with integrity and poise.

“It’s an honour to know you on and off court, and for many years to come. I know that this new chapter will hold amazing things for you, Mirka, the kids, all your loved ones, and Roger fans still have a lot to look forward to.

“From our family to yours, we wish you much joy, health, and prosperity in the future.”
