Roger Federer’s time at the 2013 French Open is over after losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals earlier this week. Federer’s career on the court, however, is not.

That said, the news of Federer’s retirement — which did not happen — would obviously be monumental, and with that in mind, Road to Roland Garros pulled a prank on several tennis stars to see how they would react to word of Fed hanging up the racket.

You can see the execution of the prank and the various reactions (sorry, no celebrations) in the video below:
