Federer, who was expected to compete at the Swiss Indoors, his home tournament, in October, and possibly at least Wimbledon next year, will play in next week’s Laver Cup in London.

Rafel Nadal overtook Federer’s tally at this year’s Australian Open due to injuries and now sits in first place with 22 major titles.

Novac Djokovic is also ahead of Federer with 21, following his win this year at Wimbledon.

Federer’s sudden retirement announcement is the second exit from Tennis in September after 23-time major winner Serena Williams, who shared the stage with Federer for his entire career, also transitioned into retirement following her defeat in the third round of the U.S. Open.

However, reports are coming out that she has taken a U-turn on her retirement plan.
