Federer promised himself he would retire after “missing everything” about tennis.

After realizing that he missed “everything” about tennis in retirement, Roger Federer disclosed that he made a promise to himself. The 20-time Grand Slam champion put down his racket at last year’s Laver Cup and is now attending the team competition as a spectator.
And Federer’s presence at events like Wimbledon is all in keeping with his promise to keep his word. Federer promised not to be a stranger.

The Big Four competitors who were Federer’s weekend teammates from Europe when he retired at the Laver Cup in London’s O2 Arena are well known.
The 42-year-old is back at the competition that he co-founded as the sixth edition moves to Vancouver, 12 months after playing his final match in the doubles with Rafael Nadal.

Jim Courier, who spoke with Federer after his final match, conducted a special on-court Q&A to commemorate the anniversary of his retirement during the competition.
The former world No. 1 acknowledged that he “missed everything” about tennis, from the dramatic moments to the tension of break points, as he thought back on life after the sport.

When asked if he missed playing professional tennis, he responded, “Of course I do, guys.
“In a way, I miss every aspect of the game and the thrilling on-court experiences, including the break points saved, winning match points, holding up trophies, and passing fans taking selfies.
It’s all a part of the tour’s big, happy family.

The 103-time champion did, however, discover a way to satisfy his craving for the thrilling events.
Federer vowed to remain approachable from the moment he announced his retirement, and he has already begun to make unexpected guest appearances at some tournaments.

“I still have those moments from time to time, you know when I went to Wimbledon or I went to Halle, and I made myself a promise that I will be no stranger to the tour, that I will try to return from time to time, not all the time, but from time to time,” he continued.
I’m ecstatic to be here as well for that reason.
