Maria Sharapova
33-Year-Old
Retires from professional tennis
February 26, 2020
Sharapova announced Wednesday in an exclusive essay released on Vanity Fair that she has decided to retire from professional tennis.
ANALYSIS
Sharapova rose to fame as a 17-year-old in 2004, when she defeated Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final to claim her first Grand Slam title. She went on to win four more Grand Slams, but her career had taken a downward turn in recent years, as she battled recurring right shoulder injuries and also served a 15-month doping ban. After losing in her last four matches at major tournaments, the 32-year-old evidently decided it was an appropriate time to step away from the sport.
