Wimbledon, UK – Roger Federer will return to Center Court at Wimbledon on Tuesday. No, not playing: rather, he will be honored for his brilliant career in the London Garden.

Federer, who retired last year, has won eight of his 20 Grand Slam titles at the All England Club, more tennis players than Novak Djokovic will try to match him in this edition of the tournament.

Martina Navratilova is the most successful at Wimbledon, winning the tournament nine times.

“We are delighted to announce that Roger will be with us tomorrow and there will be a celebration on Center Court before today’s kick off,” All England Club chairman Sally Bolton said on Monday. We want to pay tribute to him as the holder of the most titles among men.

“We will treasure this moment to remember his exploits and thank him for all the memories he has given us.”

She added that Serena Williams, who has won seven of her 23 major titles at Wimbledon, was also invited, “but she…is pregnant, and obviously can’t travel.”

Williams also withdrew.

“Obviously we wish her all the best at the end of her pregnancy and maybe hope to see her next year.”
