Roger Federer ended his legendary career with an anti-climactic defeat at the Laver Cup alongside his longtime rival and friend Rafael Nadal.

Federer returned to the court after more than a year, with the crowds going gaga watching him in action. But the pair of Federer and Nadal lost 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 11-9 in the doubles match against Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock.

The game had a greater purpose than winning or losing as Federer had already announced his retirement last week. From hitting an ace to tying his shoelaces, everything was the last time as the Swiss legend said after the match.
