Prime Video strikes another blow with a documentary film about Roger Federer that will soon hit this streaming platform.

Federer: Twelve Final Days looks at the last 12 days of the 42-year-old tennis star’s career and gives viewers a glimpse of his emotions and inner world during this period in his life.

After more than 20 years in the tennis world, thousands of matches and 20 Grand Slam titles to his name, Roger announced his retirement in September 2022.

Between 2005 and 2010, he played in 18 of the 19 Grand Slam finals. At the same time, he won the US Open five times in a row – between 2004 and 2008.

He has already held up a multitude of tennis cups and is also the sports star with the most Laureus titles to his name. He has been honored five times as the sportsman of the year at this sports awards event.

He was 22 years old when he was first named the world’s number one player, and in 2018 he became the oldest player to wield the scepter in the ATP rankings.

He was then 36 years old.

He won six Australian Opens, one French Open, eight Wimbledon tournaments and five US Opens.

Award-winning directors Asif Kapadia and Joe Sabia directed the movie. The movie was created from home footage that was not actually intended for the public.
