Roger Federer retiring from professional tennis a few short days after Serena Williams played in her final US Open was a tough pill to swallow for Tennis fans. Losing two GOATs from the sport in such a short period of time leaves behind a vacuum of emptiness for millions of fans.

There is a silver lining, however, Federer isn’t disappearing from the public eye forever. He’s simply retiring from competitive professional tennis. Roger will still be a fixture on the tennis scene and he’ll remain one of the most famous athletes on earth.

I don’t even know why I’m typing this out but Roger Federer’s retirement also has no bearing on his talent. He’s the GOAT. But many, myself included, never considered that Roger’s Tennis skills translated to Table Tennis or Ping Pong. Here he’s dressed like James Bond in Monte Carlo putting on an absolute CLINIC at the Ping Pong table.
