Federer won his last Grand Slam title on 28 January 2018. Then he defeated Marin Cilic of Croatia in the title match. At the same time, he became the first male player to win 20 Grand Slams.
Despite reaching the fourth round of the French Open played in June 2021, Federer had decided to withdraw from the tournament. He took this decision to keep himself fit for Wimbledon. They were defeated in straight sets in the quarterfinals. Since then, he has not been seen playing on the court.
