“Dear fans…or I should say friends. As you might have heard, I announced my retirement from professional tennis today. It feels weird. Until now, tennis was the only world I knew. I have always had enormous love for this amazing sport. Even though all the pain, tears, renunciation and sweat, all the great moment and victories were worth it!

“I never planned to end my career during a pandemic. However, some moments in life just can’t be planned and I am super excited for my next life role as a mom. It doesn’t mean I will accept that fact that I didn’t play my last match in front of an audience. Once it’s possible, I will play one last match…in front of you. To say a proper goodbye,” she wrote on her social media account.
