Venise confirms her retirement via facebook

Venise Chan
Today I am sad to tell you my leave from full time professional tennis due to occasional injuries and personal reasons.

It's been 20 years since I first held a tennis racket in my hand and the last 6 years was exceptionally memorable with playing experience both as a college amateur player and as a pro player on tour. It was my passion for tennis and the honour of representing Hong Kong that motivated me to keep me going all these years.

Recapping the incredible 15 years of unforgettable memories, I recall times of wins and losses, of reaching a highest ranked at no. 1 in HK women's tennis, no. 24 in world juniors, no. 340 in world women's, of playing in all junior grand slam events, of traveling across 35+ countries in the world, of days of solitude and of true camaraderie.

But what I treasure the most are the people that I have met. Each one of you have come into my life unexpectedly and each one of you have brought me joy, sadness, hope, fear and also opportunities. I would like to thank all of you who truly believed in me and supported me throughout this journey. Thanks to all my sponsors, coaches, mentors, advisors, friends, fans, the association and all who played a part in supporting HK tennis. Especially for the last 2 years, thanks to you who always stood by me and made the impossible possible. Of course, lastly, thanks to my parents who supported me and encouraged me to follow my dreams. Although tennis to me was a dream that came true, I believe that there is a world beyond tennis that I seek and I look forward to this new chapter of life.

If you asked me what kind of advice I'd give to young players who want to make it big out there, it would be to stay focus and to work really hard. In life, it's tough to balance all things perfectly, so if you believe you have made the right choice, go for it and never regret about it. To differentiate yourself from the rest of the competitors, you ought to be willing to go the extra miles and to sacrifice your own time because persistence, patience and effort are the keys to winning. Those three things have always been in my mind and they brought me to where I want to be today. Practice makes perfect but you got to practice in the right way with the right guidance too. Honing my skills took me many years of training but even today I would never say I'm an expert of this game.

I have always admired and respected players who strive so hard for success. Being a professional tennis player was never easy and I just want to wish all of you the best of luck and may 2014 bring you what you dream of and strive for.

As for you, tennis, my soul-mate, our parting today needs not last forever. We will meet again one day just like we always do.

Happy New Year
