So who's going to retire in 2020?

Who do you think is going to end their career after next season?

Venus Jameka?
Junri Namigata?
Maria Sugapova?
Sam Stosur?
Akgul Amanmuradova?
Caroline Wozniacki?

Apart from obvious ones like Minella who already have announced this.

Barbora Strycova perhaps... (if she doesn’t retire this year that is)

I don't think JJ will never retire officially...

Re: So who's going to retire in 2020?

Junri can still compete physically. Her massive choking isn't really because of her age. I hope she plays awhile longer.

fan of:



Mirjana Lucic-Baroni
Marta Domachowska

For some reason I don't think Maria will officially retire yet but will rather use her active player status for some other off court benefits. Serena and Venus will not retire before Serena starts losing very early at slams so it becomes obvious that she is done winning titles. She plays like 5-6 events a year so it's not like tour life takes much of her time anyways.

I expect Cibukova to go, as well as Jankovic's officiall retirement, perhaps even Azarenka and Wozniacki. Would not be surprised if we get one sudden retirement such as Stephens/Muguruza.

Robson, Bellis, Konjuh...?

There are limits to what surgery can do.

Will Namigata ever end her career?

I don't think Sam will retire in 2020 though she might well make an announcement that she will retire after the 2021 AUS Open.

Parmentier seems very likely to me.

Wozniacki, Kuznetsova and Venus. Serena won't be playing in 2021 if she wins her 24th or 25th Slam next year.

You may add Carla Suárez Navarro in the list.

She's hinted that she wants to become mother soon and won't be coming back to tennis after.

Bacsinszky is pretty surely retiring, too.
