Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer retired from the sport last week after an emotional farewell at the Laver Cup 2022 in London.

The likes of Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas too shed a tear or two. Days after retiring from the sport, ATP Tour posted a video of Virat Kohli on their Instagram account. Kohli can be heard showing praises on Federer and the epic career he had. The ATP Tour captioned it as : "Thank you for all the incredible memories, Roger."
"Hello, Roger. It's a great honour for me to be able to send this video across for you, congratulating you on a phenomenal career that has given us so many beautiful moments and memories. I personally had the chance to meet you in Australian Open in 2018, something that I'll never ever forget in my life. One thing that stood out for me even watching you play, was the fact that so many people around the world, not just in the world of tennis got behind you, supporting you and that kind of unity I've never seen for any other individual athlete ever. That is something that cannot be created, that cannot be generated in anyway," Kohli had said in the video.
