Can't remember if Bouchard was top 10 when she retires (from tennis) in 2015...

Jennifer Capriati played her last match in late 2004 ranked in the top 10. She was forced to retire due to injuries.

Re: Players who retired while being top 10?

I recall when Chris Evert retired she was No. 4 for several months. She then requested that her name be removed from the lists as it was unfair to all the active players ranked below her.
