Today, I want to share some news with you. As everyone knows, the past three years have been a challenge for me in the form of injuries. I worked hard to get back, but my body sent me clear messages. Tennis has treated me better than I ever dreamed of, but I have to recognize the moment to end my professional career.

Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt, and now I must recognize when it is time to end my competitive career.
