Federer, the golden age of tennis, steps that are not only told by numbers

 Place of origin: Paris/France

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Roger Federer fans call him the greatest player of all time, but his longtime rival Rafael Nadal has won the most Grand Slam titles. Rafael Nadal (Spain) and Novak Djokovic (Serbia) will end their playing careers worshiping dust.

Federer, 41, who has won 20 Grand Slam titles, announced his retirement on Friday. The timing was unexpected, but considering he was struggling with a knee injury, the decision itself wasn’t too surprising. After playing more than 1,500 games over 24 years, he admits his creaking body could no longer withstand the rigors of competition and the passage of time was inevitable.
