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.

A great ambassador for the sport, even if she was virtually unchallenged!

Re: Esther Vergeer announces her retirement from tennis

Not really surprising after she had chosen not to compete in Australia. Great ambassador!

Re: Esther Vergeer announces her retirement from tennis

No wonder she didn't play at the AO. I guess she retired because she's too bored with no competition.

All the best in your future undertakings.
