Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal in tears as the former bids farewell

Over the course of the past decade and more, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have thrived regardless of circumstance.

They have stared each other down in the finals of the grandest tournaments around the world.

Federer’s legendary career ended as a flat tiebreak at the end of an intense second set sent them to a match tiebreak.

They stood together on the same side of the net as they were defeated by Team World’s Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe at the Laver Cup.

In the process, one of the greatest ever sporting careers came to an end.

As the match ended, Federer’s composure finally broke. After he began to cry, Nadal wept alongside him throughout.
