Roger Federer Lends Final Match Kit To International Tennis Hall Of Fame | Sports Opinion
Roger Federer retired earlier this year following the Laver Cup. But the Swiss legend is still giving back to the fans.
Federer loaned his kit and shoes from the final match of his career to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, where fans can see it. The outfit and an autographed copy of his retirement letter are on display in the museum.
“This addition to the International Tennis Hall of Fame is a fitting tribute to the final chapter in a defining career,” said International Tennis Hall of Fame CEO Todd Martin. “We are tremendously grateful to Roger for this generous loan, and for valuing our mission to preserve tennis history as it happens. The ITHF congratulates Roger on all his achievements, the example he has set for everyone in the sport, and for his dedication to the sport’s history. We know this exhibit will inspire countless fans and visitors.”
There are several items relating to Federer in the museum, one of which is a hologram experience that bears his likeness.
The International Tennis Hall of Fame is home to the Infosys Hall of Fame Open, an ATP 250 event that in 2023 will be played from 17-23 July.
