Roger Federer was given a standing ovation by the 02 Arena crowd ahead of his farewell doubles match at the Laver Cup, on Friday night.
The Swiss tennis legend revealed earlier this month that the London tournament would be the final competition of his career, having struggled with a series of injuries in recent years.

Greeting his audience: Roger received a standing ovation from the crowd at the O2 Arena on Friday afternoon
Success: The Swiss star won 20 Grand Slam Championships across his impressive tennis career
For the final match of his 24-year-long career, Federer played alongside his long-term competitor for Team Europe against American duo Jack Sock and Francis Tiafoe.
The 41-year-old looked a relaxed figure backstage, as he spoke with team captain Bjorn Borg and team-mates Stefanos Tsitsipas and Matteo Berrettini, before making his way onto the court.
Federer had previously spoken of his desire to play alongside Nadal, before Team Europe captain Borg helped grant the tennis legend his wish.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion – who sits third in the men’s all-time tally – bows out as one of the greatest to ever take to the court, claiming a stunning total of 103 singles titles on the ATP Tour.
The Laver Cup, which Federer helped to establish in 2017, sees Team Europe go up against Team World in tennis’ version of golf’s Ryder Cup, with nine singles and three doubles matches taking place at London’s O2 Arena.
End of the road: Earlier this month, Federer announced his plans to retire after the Laver Cup this month
