Esther Vergeer announces her retirement from tennis
This morning Esther Vergeer announced on Twitter she is retiring from tennis with immediate effect. She will hold a press conference at 1pm at the ABN AMRO WTT tournament. At this mens tournament she's is the tournament director of the wheelchair event. She'll also be launching her official biography today.
It's sad that she's leaving the sport. She can be very proud of her run of 470 matches during a 10 year time span. Olympic gold at four Olympic games and 27 grand slam victories.

Not really surprising after she had chosen not to compete in Australia. Great ambassador!
Magdalena Maleeva's last words at her send-off:
"There is a saying that there is no friendship in tennis, but I've proven the opposite. After all of them are here, it means that there is friendship and I want to thank them for being here tonight. I hope the fans are happy too."
