Laver Cup 2022. So it was Roger Federer’s last game that would end in defeat. After a tight match, the Swiss, along with Rafael Nadal, had to bend over a very strenuous break where he was going to serve in the match, as happened at Wimbledon in 2019. A party touching his image.


  • It wasn’t the ending we were expecting, nor the fireworks we were hoping for. In his last professional match, Roger Federer suffered a final defeat. In doubles with Rafael Nadal, Basel, who had not given up on his commitment, won in the first round but was unable to force the decision in the undecided second quarter as he and the Spaniard sank in the tiebreak. The super tiebreak was contested and committed, but the former world number one Swiss was unable to convert match point to his serve, unlike Jack Sock, after a few moments. Thus, the defeat to American and compatriot Francis Tiafoe (7-5, 6-7, 9-11 in 2 hours 14 minutes) ended Federer’s career chapter.
  • Earlier in the day, Team Europe showed their supremacy with victories for Tsitsipas and Roed thrashing Schwartzman (6-2, 6-1) and Sock (6-4, 5-7, 10-7), ahead of early reaction from Team Monde early on. From the evening by Alex De Minaur. The Australian ended up dominating Murray, stubborn but of fair physique (5-7 6-3 10-7).
