About Federer: Twelve Final Days Movie

As the documentary was originally shot as a home video with no plans for public viewing, it captures Federer at his most vulnerable and candid. It also includes interviews with Federer’s legendary rivals and close friends, including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

The past two years have seen the inevitable end of an era in men’s tennis that we will never see again. Dominated by the ‘Big Three’ of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic (four including Britain’s Andy Murray), sheer charisma and distinctive personalities brought a gladiatorial edge to the game.

And as we watched them grow from boisterous boys, to men, to husbands/fathers — while rarely missing a shot — fans loved them with an unprecedented passion, perhaps none more so than Swiss superstar Federer

Federer: Twelve Final Days is the latest documentary from Asif Kapadia — here co-directing with 73 Questions host/producer Joe Sabia for Amazon Studios — who did such a great job unpacking the tragic deaths of Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna and singer/songwriter Amy. Winehouse.

Winehouse. Here the pair detail the final 12 days of Federer’s career – 24-plus years as a pro, more than 1,500 matches, records set as regularly as Balls – and, of course not comparable to Senna’s or Amy’s stories, the agony he felt as the effort came to an end. to express feelings. Warning: There are lots of tears

Federer: Twelve Final Days Movie The stuff we’ve come to expect from a sports documentary — contributions from peers, family, agents, pundits and fans, along with fuzzy 4:3 TV clips from the late ’90s/early ’00s and endlessly compelling footage of Fed balleticism on the court — 12 days from the eve of Roger’s retirement announcement in 2022. Hung around the camera crew until his final match in the Laver Cup

It will no doubt be a lot of fun for tennis nuts, with intimate footage of one of its biggest stars meeting, hanging out with family and hanging out in the locker room.

Interestingly, the film quietly — but not really — builds to a final act that puts fierce rival/dear friend/sometime partner-turned-uncontrollably-smiling Rafael Nadal almost front and center — or at least, right next to the main man, where he lived, professionally. Almost two decades.

A tribute to how the pair pushed each other and the game to new heights, evolving from arch nemesis (on the court at least) to beloved elder statesman with a common enemy in the suddenly supersized Novak Djokovic — maintaining a deep mutual respect throughout their careers that remains unmatched in any sport. A tearful Nadal bid farewell to Federer at London’s O2 Arena will only ease the hardest of hearts.

But this is certainly Federer’s film, and many will be genuinely interested in meeting the goofily lovable man behind the cream suits, famous embroidered jackets and Rolex watches, the quick-to-laugh-at-himself and self-deprecating geek. Federer: Twelve Final Days Movie

We’ve got Hugh Grant watching him courtside, with Vogue matriarch/Roger BFF Anna Wintour ringing to check that everything’s okay.
and three sisters who have traveled from Kenya to London just to say goodbye. There is no doubt that he was truly loved, and as has been said here repeatedly, was instrumental in changing the state of the game forever. As such, Kapadia and Sabia’s documentary would be highly regarded
