The Swiss maestro won 20 Grand Slam titles during his glittering career, including eight Wimbledon titles – more than any other male tennis player in history.

Federer will go down as one of the all-time greats in sport, not only tennis, with a global audience captivated by his brilliance on court. Some of his raw numbers may have been surpassed by elite competitors, but his style of play and dominance at SW19 will see history remember him as an unparalleled genius.

Federer's last Grand Slam victory came in the 2018 Australian Open. He reached the Wimbledon final in 2019 against the odds, but has only featured in two of the last 11 majors since COVID first struck the globe.

Fans will have one final chance to see him play live in the flesh as Federer confirmed he will feature in one last tournament.

RadioTimes.com brings you all the details about Roger Federer's last match.

When is Roger Federer's last match?

Federer has confirmed that he will play in this year's Laver Cup, which will take place between Friday 23rd September 2022 and Sunday 25th September 2022.

The 41-year-old will play in the first doubles match of the tournament, which takes place from 7pm on Friday 23rd September 2022.

Federer's match will follow the conclusion of Andy Murray v Alex de Minaur, which starts at 7pm, so expect to see Federer at approximately 8:30pm-9pm. This is subject to change.

He will team up with long-time adversary Rafael Nadal for an emotional final encounter before he withdraws from the tournament ahead of the singles matches.

The tournament is into its fifth year and is styled as a Ryder Cup equivalent for tennis where Team Europe faces Team World in singles and doubles matches that translate into points across a three-day period.

Federer will team up alongside Nadal, Murray and Novak Djokovic as they form an unprecedented elite Team Europe.

Where is Roger Federer's last match held?

The Laver Cup 2022 rotates around the globe but will take place at the O2 Arena in London this year.

The ATP Finals were played here between 2009 and 2020 but have since moved to Turin, Italy, meaning this is your last chance to see elite level tennis being played in the UK this calendar year.
