Federer became the first guy to win 20 Grand Slam titles after battling knee issues for years.

Federer, 41, had intended to return for a final goodbye in 2023 but will retire after next week's Laver Cup in London.

Federer had two knee operations in 2020 and tried to return last year, reaching the fourth round of the French Open before withdrawing and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Federer won't complete his career with the most Grand Slam championships — Nadal has 22 and Novak Djokovic passed him at Wimbledon this year.

Forbes Magazine named Federer as the world's highest-paid athlete in 2020 despite playing few matches.

He won 15 of 26 Grand Slams, including five consecutive Wimbledons and U.S. Opens. 2004-2007: 315 of 339 wins.

Federer won the 2018 Australian Open, his 20th and final major title.
