Roger Federer ends his career with Lavar Cup loss alongside Nadal

The historic career of the first man to win 20 major championships is over.

Roger Federer ended his 24-year dominance on the tennis court after he and Rafael Nadal lost in the doubles match to Francis Tiafoe and Jack Sock in the final tiebreak, 4-6, 7-6 (2), (11-9) at the Laver Cup Friday in London.

Sock hacked a massive forehand to put an end to one of the greatest male tennis players in the sport’s history. But with Federer’s celebrity career reaching its climax, the 36-year-old was full of emotions but a sense of gratitude for now. “I’m going to do it all over again,” emotional Federer said in a post-match interview.
