Amelie retires... :


Amelie just gave a press conference announcing her retirement from tennis...

After a 15 year career,highlighted by prestigious titles and so much happiness.Amelie just announced her retirement:"After taking time for reflection;I finally decided to retire and turn the page."

Amelie Mauresmo retires

PARIS, Dec 3 — Twice grand slam winner and former world number one Amelie Mauresmo announced her retirement today.

“I came here to announce the end of my career. I made this decision after careful consideration,” the 30-year-old Frenchwoman told a news conference before bursting into tears.

“It was becoming tough mentally. What happened is I simply did not want to go training any more. My tennis life lasted 25 years, there were extraordinary things and tough moments.”

Mauresmo first topped the rankings in September 2004 and clinched her two grand slam titles in 2006 when she won the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

She collected 25 WTA Tour singles crowns and won the Fed Cup with France in 2003.

“I had three main goals in my career, becoming world number one, claiming a grand slam title and a Fed Cup. I achieved all of them,” said Mauresmo.

“When I look back I have no regret and great pride.”

Following her Antwerp Diamond Games victory in 2007, she took longer than expected to recover from an appendectomy and suffered a series of injuries.

Mauresmo spent a long time in the wilderness and thought about quitting before storming back to claim the Paris Open title in February 2009.

“I had some luck this year because I felt some emotions I had not felt in previous years,” she said.

However, Mauresmo failed to keep up the momentum, losing to Russian Dinara Safina in the fourth round at Wimbledon in a match completed under the Centre Court’s new roof.

Serving at the start, she hit the first competitive shot under the roof in that match.

Mauresmo, who had one of the finest backhands on the tour, had not played since losing to Canada’s Aleksandra Wozniak in the second round of the US Open in September.

She ruled out the idea of a farewell season.

“I watched (compatriot) Fabrice (Santoro) do it and that is something that really does not appeal to me,” said Mauresmo, the most successful French female player since Suzanne Lenglen in the 1910s and 1920s. — Reuters

Amélie Mauresmo should lift the veil on how she intends to give her career. The Frenchwoman had indeed summoned the press on Thursday late morning in Paris. And if doubt is still permitted, it is more than likely she announces her withdrawal from the courts after sixteen years in business. The former world number one (a position she reached in September 2004 and March 2006) no longer appeared in competition since losing in the second round of the U.S. Open in late August. A few weeks later, she ended her season, citing a lack of desire.

Having already reluctant to retire at the end of last season, Mauresmo still had re-enlisted for another year. With specific goals, namely winning a tournament and make a good performance at Wimbledon, the test which takes the most. The first was done with the title at the Open Gaz de France, the 25th of her career, before ending in the fourth round in London. "The major goal for me this year was Wimbledon. We can easily imagine that it is difficult to leave behind. There was a great cut, great moments with family, friends, etc.. C ' was a little hard, "she said on her website after the U.S. Open.

Her coach, Hugo Lecoq, talking regularly with her these days, as Xavier Moreau, her physical trainer since 2002, which was recently expressed in the columns of L'Equipe. According to him, her mood swung between "I'm able to play at the highest level" and "I feel an enormous weariness over constraints." And if she wants to be physically ready to begin the 2010 season in Australia, the Frenchwoman, 30 years old, who completed the year to 21st place worldwide, had a tight timing for taking a decision "no later than early December "according to Moreau. It is and we will then know.
