He came. We saw. He conquered. We admired.

Thank you @rogerfederer for elevating our sport to an unfathomable extent. For making this sport look so damn effortless, but complicated to emulate at the same time. Your style, personality, talent, finesse and passion will be remembered in the game of tennis forever!

I can’t thank you enough for being the reason I pursued tennis in the first place. The reason I play a one-handed backhand today. The reason I dreamt for the first time watching you lift that Wimbledon trophy in 2004.

To truly “federize” someone you must not only dominate them, but also dominate them with class and style. And that can be found in the Urban Dictionary thanks to you @rogerfederer.

Proud and honoured to be part of “The Last Dance” 🇪🇺 by your side.
