Serena Williams took to her Instagram to applaud Roger Federer after he bowed out of playing tennis.

She uploaded three images of herself and Federer performing different duties on the court.

She used the caption to acknowledge Federer’s impact on the game of tennis.

Federer quit tennis after sustaining a knee injury and multiple attempts to fix the problem.

He announced his retirement through a statement he posted on social media.

The 41-year-old last played at the 2021 Wimbledon, getting to the quarterfinals.

Williams recently joked about returning to playing tennis like Tom Brady.

She made the disclosure during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show.

The tennis legend said she would not be relaxing during her time off as it was a chance to do much more.
