Roger Federer officially retired from professional tennis after the Laver Cup last year – he recently spent his time skiing on the Alpine slopes
Roger Federer is back to doing one of his favourite things and seems to be enjoying his post-retirement phase. The tennis maestro was seen skiing on the Alpine slopes back in his home country of Switzerland. Federer has always stated that he loves skiing and even his children look forward to doing it with him on the snow-capped slopes of the mighty Alps.
After announcing his retirement last year, Federer had revealed that he is really excited at the prospect of finally getting to spend some quality time with his family. He also revealed that his children had mixed reactions upon hearing about his retirement. Speaking about their reaction, Federer had said: “They were very emotional. Three out of four cried. They asked if we are not going to Halle, to Wimbledon, to Indian Wells anymore and I said not really but if they want, we can go again.” The Swiss maestro then jokingly revealed that his children always wanted him to retire so that they can go skiing with him. It’s indeed great to see that Federer is able to fulfil the wishes of his children especially after his ACL and knee surgeries.
