Garbine Muguruza announces retirement from tennis

Posted : 20 April 2024

Former world No 1 and two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza announced her retirement from tennis at the age of 30 during a press conference at the Laureus Awards, marking the end of a distinguished career that spanned several memorable achievements.


Muguruza revealed that her decision to retire had been a gradual one, influenced by more than a year of absence from competitive play since her last official match at the Lyon Open in January 2023.


Reflecting on her journey, Muguruza expressed her contentment with the break from the rigors of professional tennis upon ceasing competition, finding solace and fulfillment in her life away from the sport. Despite her undeniable talent and numerous successes on the court, including securing 10 singles titles, Muguruza found herself increasingly drawn to a different path outside the realm of competitive tennis.


Muguruza's career highlights include reaching her first Grand Slam final in 2015, where she faced Serena Williams at Wimbledon, and capturing her maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open in 2016. Her triumphs continued with a victory over Venus Williams at Wimbledon in 2017, making her the first Spanish woman since 1998 to win a Grand Slam.


Under the guidance of coach Conchita Martinez, Muguruza ascended to the world No 1 ranking, etching her name in the annals of Spanish tennis history alongside legendary figures like Arantxa Sanchez Vicario and Martinez herself.
