19 Sep 2014 08:08
Two-time grand slam winner Li Na has announced her retirement from tennis after struggling to overcome knee problems.
Reports emerged on Thursday that the 32-year-old Chinese, who won the 2011 French Open and 2014 Australian Open singles titles, had chosen to hang up her racquet.
And the world number six confirmed on Friday in a lengthy statement that fitness troubles meant she could no longer play at the level required.
"Representing China on the tennis court was an extraordinary privilege and a true honour,” she said in a statement.
"Having the unique opportunity to effectively bring more attention to the sport of tennis in China and all over Asia is something I will cherish forever. But in sport, just like in life, all great things must come to an end.
