Roger Federer said seeing the emotions from everyone around him will stick with him forever, following his retirement from tennis at the Laver Cup. Federer admitted he doesn't quite know what is next for him, and shared his delight at now having such a strong friendship with Nadal both on and off the court. 'I can call up Rafa and talk about anything. And I hope he feels the same way.'
“The last two days have been tough to say the least,” said Federer in his post-match press conference. “Thankfully in moments I totally forgot about it, slept great, everything was wonderful, I could enjoy it, I feel. And because of that I think I will be able to have a better recollection of how it went.
“Because if it’s all just stress throughout and I want it to be only perfect, I know I will remember half of it. Because I felt the way I felt, I feel like I have dealt with my retirement strongly for the last month.”
