Maria Sharapova announces her retirement from Tennis

Maria Sharapova, a tennis player has announced her retirement from tennis. She says goodbye to tennis in a column she has written for Vogue and vanity fair.

In an emotional statement, Maria said: “In giving my life to tennis, tennis gave me a life. I’ll miss the training and my daily routine. Waking up at dawn, lacing my left shoe before my right, and closing the court’s gate before I hit my first ball of the day.”

“I’ll miss my team, my coaches. I’ll miss the moments sitting with my father on the practice court bench. The handshakes win or lose and the athletes, whether they knew it or not, who pushed me to be my best,” she added.

In 1994 when Maria was just seven years old she moved to Florida for professional training. She won her first grand slam at the age of 17 when she defeated Serena Williams in the final of Wimbledon.

She also won two French Open titles, one Australian Open, and another one was the US Open. She is the five-time winner of a grand slam.
