“Our paths have always been so similar. You inspired millions of people – including me. We will never forget it” – wrote the 40-year-old American woman, who recently announced her retirement herself.
The message to the legendary Swiss player whom she has “always respected and admired” is accompanied by several joint photos of the two tennis giants smiling.
Federer, 41, the winner of 20 Grand Slam titles, announced on Thursday that he is definitely going into retirement from his sport. Next week’s Laver Cup in London will be his last event in his career.
For a time, Williams and Federer were considered by many to be the best players to ever compete in tennis. Now, almost at the same time, they announced a break with active sport. They won a total of 43 titles in the Grand Slam singles tournaments.
“I wanted to find the perfect way to thank you. You said goodbye in an elegant manner. Your career was perfect,” added Williams.
The American applauded the Swiss and expressed interest in his plans in the future. “Welcome to the retirement club. And thank you for being Roger,” she concluded.
This guy does not need to be introduced to volleyball fans. Sebastian Świderski, president of the Polish Volleyball Federation and world runner-up in 2006, meets with Łukasz Kadziewicz before the quarter-final match of the Poles in this year’s championship. What does it tell him about the backstage of the election of Nikola Grbić as the coach of the Polish volleyball team? How does he evaluate his coaching achievements? – Everything depends on the group of people you meet – says Sebastian Świderski “In the Shadow of Sport”. He reveals what people he has met on his professional path, who he calls the biggest “freak”, with whom he has not exchanged a word in the locker room and outside, what he learned from moving to Italy and what the current generation of volleyball players keeps … in the refrigerator.
