Emotional Roger Federer wishes he could ‘go on forever’ as he prepares to retire from tennis

Follow live updates as Roger Federer bids farewell to tennis and plays the final of his career alongside Rafael Nadal in the Laver Cup. Federer, perhaps considered the greatest champion in tennis history, will retire from the sport at the age of 41, and this moment has brought the sport and its rivals together at the O2 Arena.

Federer’s wish to play his last match with his great rival Nadal was granted, setting up a special occasion with Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray also on Team Europe. They will face Team World, led by John McEnroe and have lost all four previous editions of the match-style event.

Before my husband tonight, three singles matches were played. Casper Rudd won the opening match of the day against Jack Sock 6-4 5-7 (10-7), followed by Stefanos Tsitsipas by crushing Diego Schwartzman 6-2 6-1 to double Europe’s lead.

However, the match was overshadowed by a bizarre climate change protest in which a man set his arm on fire while on the field, while wearing a T-shirt that read: “End UK Private Jets”.

Murray then faced Alex de Minaur, with Team World taking their first point after a long 5-7 6-3 (10-7) win, before the eyes of the world focused on Federer for the last time and the Swiss brought his legendary career to an end. Follow live updates for the opening day of the Laver Cup, below:
