“I’m happy, because I know it’s the right decision” to walk away from the game, Federer said Wednesday during a news conference at the stadium that will host the team competition founded by his management company.

Wearing a blue blazer with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows and a white polo shirt, Federer fielded questions for about half an hour, occasionally smiling or laughing at his own jokes.
