Încă o jucătoare cunoscută a anunțat că se retrage din tenis.

La 30 de ani, Dominika Cibulkova a explicat de ce spune adio tenisului.

“După cum ştiţi, nu am mai jucat la turnee de câteva luni. Ceea ce a început ca o problemă persistentă la tendonul lui Ahile a devenit unul dintre cele mai dificile momente ale vieţii mele – a trebuit să decid ce să fac cu cariera mea. După multă reflecţie, după discuţii şi susţinerea familiei, prietenilor şi echipei mele, am decis în cele din urmă că nu voi mai reveni pe teren ca jucătoare. Este un moment plin de sentimente: tristeţe, teama de necunoscut, dar şi entuziasm pentru ce îmi va aduce viaţa”, a scris Cibulkova pe Instagram.

“Abia aştept să păşesc în următoarea parte a vieţii mele şi să abordez noi provocări, să petrec momente fericite cu familia mea, cu prietenii, să vizitez locuri noi şi să îmi creez noi amintiri. Îmi va fi dor de susţinerea fanilor mei pe terenul de tenis, dar nu vă voi uita niciodată pentru că tenisul va fi mereu parte din mine. Un nou capitol începe acum…”, a anunțat Cibulkova.

Today, with mixed feelings, I have special news to share with you all. As you know I haven’t been playing tournaments for several months. What started as a recurring Achilles injury, developed into one of the most difficult moments in my life – deciding on what to do with my tennis career. After a lot of thinking, talks, and support from my family, friends, and my team, I have finally decided that I will not be returning to the courts as a competitive player. It is a moment filled with so many feelings – saddness, fear of the unknown, but also excitement of what life will bring in the future. I was one of the luckiest kids to stumble upon the road of a tennis player thanks to my wonderful parents and I will be forever grateful for their unconditional support. They did everything possible to keep me moving forward no matter how big the obstacles that stood in the way. I was also very fortunate to have a whole « village » of wonderful people around me who helped shape my career and help me achieve goals and dreams that children dream about. I am chosing today as the day I announce my retirement from tennis because this is also a day on which my biography is being launched with all of the details about my career. Writing the book was a journey on its own because it also brought lots of emotions and took a significant effort to open up about my personal life. I am honored to share this special book with all my fans. I am looking forward to step into the next part of my life and take on new challenges, spend happy times with my family, friends, making new friends, visiting new places, and making new memories. I will miss the support of my fans on the tennis court but will never forget you because tennis will always be a part of me. Pomeeee 😉 New chapter begins now…. ❤️
