Former World No.3 Nadia Petrova Announces her Retirement from Tennis
, a former World No.3 in both singles and doubles, has announced her retirement from tennis.
“Tennis has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember,”
Petrova wrote on her website
. “It was pretty much everything I did on a daily basis and the little time I had off, I would spend with my loved ones. I suppose when the time comes to say goodbye, it becomes bitter sweet. It’s confusing, somewhat painful, scary yet also gratifying. I’ve decided to turn the page and move on to another stage in my life and I’m ready to do it. Tennis has given me so much. It’s given me a career, shaped me as a person, allowed me the opportunity to travel the world, make friends internationally and learn about many cultures.”
Petrova won 109 Grand Slam singles matches and reached the quarterfinals at majors nine times. She was also a two-time Roland Garros semifinalist. She is a two-time Grand Slam finalist in doubles.
She owns 29 Top 10 wins in singles including three over Reigning No.1s (
, 2010) . The 34-year-old has not played a tour-level since 2014. She plans to stay involved with tennis and to dedicate her time to charity work related to the sport.
