I love how when he said " I would gladly do it again" you could see him flash over his whole career in one single moment that flashback brought on a wave of emotions...… Someone once said " A wise man learns more from his enemies than a fool from his friends" these two fueled each other to greatness. Interdependent competitiveness and great respect for each other off the court.

I remember when I was younger and playing tennis, I saw federer with my Dad at a charity day event at Roland Garros where he did some exhibition games before the tournament officially started. This was back in 2003. I remember my father being so impressed with him, that he had never seen such a gracious and "feline" player on court. This is the only time in my life I saw Federer play. But boy my dad saw it all that day, little did we know Federer was going to be the legend he is now.

Wow amazing - you are so lucky to have witnessed pure class - his style is what made him so unique - a free graceful creative spirit when he played - one of the most skillful "one handed back hands" in the business :) I just wish I could have watched him at least once but they never made it to Canada Alberta

I cried when Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2013 and I am crying today. My favourite retired today. Watching Rafa and him playing together was a treat. Can't stop crying, tears are just rolling down. Time stops for nobody.

@BORIS BALTA oh stop this bs already. Goat has nothing to do with the titles you fool. Djokovovic won't even getting in the discusion of goat even if he gets 30 gs. It is like you say Horry is the goat of basketball because he has 7 rings against 6 of Jordan. Roger and Rafa was just on another level. But i agree with the most, that Federer has to be the goat.

His love for the sport is just immense. I have never felt personally some one who can be so attached to the sport . "I LOVE YOU, WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU! " words on his retirement. Remarkable sport, Remarkable athlete. His winning, loosing didn't matter, his presence in itself brought charm to the tourneys. Nice luck RF. die hard fan from India.

Best player ever. I don't care how many times he won a title(He made the most money during his career anyway). He is the best personality I have seen in sports. He is innocent and loving and at the end of the day that is the only thing that matters. I am so happy that he has a great family because he definitely deserves it.

Roger 1 of the all time greats an the nicest guy out there - his style that was float like a butterfly hardly dropped sweat was pure class - we love Roger in UK- 20 slams plus many other titles is a cv of a legend! He will be a great coach for someone 🎾 lucky...🤝

The most beautiful moment of sport, example for all, on and off court. Roger is a true real ambassador of what the ethic of sport and behavior must be. Respect, stay in the tennis family, you still have a important role to play, even if not on court;;;;

He will remain the best tennis player ever lived. I personally think not the Grand Slams make you the greatest but rather your overall stature, attitude and the way you entertain the crowd. Merely hitting the ball back is not enough. This guy did it all. All the best Roger to you and your family. Absolute genius !!!

It's reassuring to witness recognition to an individual that did his best to excel in his field through performance, respect, and a gentleman attitude. New generations should stop worshiping instagram or RU-vid influencers who "stage" their persona and take inspiration from people like him. We have been lucky to follow the healthy rivalry between him, Nadal, and Djokovic.

I'm just lucky to be alive to witness his magnificent career, together with some of the most extraordinary athletes of our time - Pacquiao, Jordan, Lebron, Phelps, Bolt, Grady, Woods, Carlsen, Reyes, Phil Taylor - - goats, records that would take decades to be topped. Magnifico!

Not a huge follower of tennis, but seeing Rafa and Federer crying together brought tears instantly. Yet again it's proved that as an athelete, performance makes you a champion and humbleness added with that makes you an Inspiration for millions.

Huge RF fan first and foremost. Going purely by the numbers and accomplishments, you have to give it to Novak as the likely GOAT after it's all said and done. However, no one has made the game look more easy or beautiful than Roger. His improvisation and shot-making ability and overall killer instincts made him more than just a grinder at the baseline. His attacking style combines the classic serve-and-volley shot-making ability with the modern power game. Roger literally played his prime years during that transition in tennis and it's very likely we'll never see another player quite like him. Will miss seeing you live competing but your legacy will live on YT and beyond.
