Luthi: "Impossible to continue for Roger Federer"

Severin Luthi explained why Roger Federer decided to end his professional career. Luthi explained: "The truth is that his knee has not made enough progress. At 41 year-old and over 1500 games, it was not possible to continue.

Roger Federer's retirement was a combination of these factors. Of course, it wasn't. it was an easy decision to make. Roger loves tennis, otherwise he wouldn't have played until he was 41. At the same time, he has always been a very positive man.

It would have been more difficult for me if I had seen him destroyed, but he has elaborated all this in the best way. He called me 2-3 times today to find out how I was doing. He always thinks of others." Luthi revealed his best memories of Roger's career: "I am reminded of the last triumph at Wimbledon (in 2017), but also the incredible success in Australia in 2017.

Nobody thought he would win that tournament. Not I will never forget the Davis Cup won in 2014, the gold medal in doubles with Wawrinka in 2008 and the victory in Paris in 2009."
