He has defined an era

Roger Federer owned a 17-0 lifetime document in opposition to David Ferrer, which included wins in Masters 1000 finals in Cincinnati in 2014 and the Masters Cup in Shanghai in 2007.

There have been no onerous emotions in regards to the lopsided document from the indefatigable Spaniard – solely awe.

Upon listening to that Federer had introduced his retirement on Wednesday, the director of the Davis Cup by Rakuten Finals heaped reward on the Swiss maestro from his perch in Spain.

“It was clear that sooner or later it would happen. I am stunned, but grateful for what he has given to tennis,” Ferrer stated.

Ferrer, a former World No.3 who racked up 734 wins and 27 titles on tour, says that Federer performed an enormous function in revolutionizing the boys’s sport over the past 20 years.

“He has outlined an period,” Ferrer stated. “He has been key to the growth of tennis and one of the most influential players, if not the most, in improving the sport alongside Rafa [Nadal]. Everyone loves him, he has given a lot of joy, not because of his perfect tennis game but because of the values he has espoused throughout his career.

“I would define him with three words: elegance, perfection and charisma.”
