For those not lucky enough to pick one up when they release, it will cost a small fortune to get there at the last minute.

Tickets have been listed on resale sites for up to £55,000, while there are many other tickets on offer for tens of thousands.

There’s no indication that people are actually paying such high sums for the tickets, but it does show just how much some think this historic moment will be worth.

Prices ranged from £40 to £510 when it was initially released.

Federer announced earlier this month that he would retire with a lingering knee injury preventing him from returning to the top level.

The 41-year-old will play his last career game alongside longtime rival and friend Rafael Nadal.

Federer and Nadal will face Team World’s Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock at 02 London on Friday night around 9pm.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the 20-time Grand Slam winner said: “I’ve been looking forward to this for some time. At some point it ends for everyone, but this one, thinking back to about a month ago I thought it would be terrible in the sense that it would be so emotional.

“Since the announcement, I know it’s going to be happy, good and exciting. I really managed to turn things around, it helped me write all those words thanking people, reminding me how good the trip was.

“A big weight came off my shoulders, and I was finally able to tell the world and tell all my friends.

“I didn’t want to tell anyone early on because the weight of this information is just not fun, to be honest.”
