This episode we share the heart breaking news of Roger Federer’s retirement as announced by him on Sept 15th 2022 on social media.  Roger chose to use an audio movie with a still picture to share the shocking news of his full retirement from the ATP tour and the end of his professional tennis career.

Personally Valerie and I share our personal journey in fandom with Roger Federer as our hero, idol, and inspiration and the few times we met the Swiss Maestro in person.  His tennis career is so much more than that of a sportsman for many.  He embodied all that was good and excellent in our lives and gave us a picture of what a great life might look like.  As a tennis player, his graceful and poetic style of play was a treasure to enjoy.   As a person he is seemed to enlighten our lives with his humor, his loyalty to his wife and kids, and his business savy.
