Roger Federer Announces Retirement

World of sport reacts to Roger Federer’s retirement announcement

The sport of tennis will have to find a new champion after Roger Federer announced his retirement from the sport. Despite being the world’s most decorated player, the Swiss star faced criticism over his on-court performances and his decision to step back from the game that he loved.
