Roger Federer's goodbye will be in doubles, maybe with Nadal


LONDON (AP) — Roger Federer says he now is at peace with his choice to retire from professional tennis and plans to close his career with one doubles match at the Laver Cup perhaps with longtime rival Rafael Nadal by his side.

Federer says he knows it is the right decision for him to walk away from the game at age 41.

He spoke at a news conference at the arena that will host the team competition founded by his management company.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion announced last week that he would be retiring.

He says it took him a bit to get used to the idea of stepping away from competition.
