Maria Sharapova Announces Retirement from Tennis

Tennis star Maria Sharapova is retiring from the sport.

The 32-year-old athlete last won a grand slam in 2014 after winning the French Open for the second time. She most recently played in the 2020 Australian Open when she was knocked out in the first round.

Maria announced the news in a column she wrote for Vanity Fair, writing, “Tennis—I’m saying goodbye.”

“Throughout my career, Is it worth it? was never even a question—in the end, it always was. My mental fortitude has always been my strongest weapon. Even if my opponent was physically stronger, more confident—even just plain better—I could, and did, persevere,” she wrote.

“I’ve never really felt compelled to speak about work, or effort, or grit—every athlete understands the unspoken sacrifices they must make to succeed. But as I embark on my next chapter, I want anyone who dreams of excelling in anything to know that doubt and judgment are inevitable: You will fail hundreds of times, and the world will watch you. Accept it. Trust yourself. I promise that you will prevail,” Maria added.

In 2016, Maria tested positive for banned substance meldonium and wasn’t allowed to play for 15 months. Here’s what Maria said about the banned substance and her suspension from the sport at the time.

In her career, Maria won five grand slam titles – two at the French Open and one each at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and US Open.

Serena Williams & Maria Sharapova Lead Nike's Queens of the Future Event!

Serena Williams strikes a pose on the court while attending Nike’s Queens of the Future event held on Tuesday (August 20) in New York City.

The 37-year-old tennis superstar was joined by Maria Sharapova as they showed out to usher in a new era of female tennis players alongside Naomi Osaka, Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys, Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Aryna Sabalenka and Elina Svitolina.

The event was held to inspire the youth players from the New York Junior Tennis & Learning program and United States Tennis Association, and included a rotating round of queen of the court, and a quick doubles match.

“When you’re an athlete, there’s so much more than just doing your sport. There’s so much more that you’re involved with,” Maria Sharapova told W mag at the vent. “The inspiration aspect that you’re giving out to the world is on another level. Sometimes you don’t really acknowledge it because you want to be so present in what you do, but you also realize how you inspire so many young girls and boys to pick up the sport, to give it a chance, to learn from it, to mature from it. There’s so many lessons that you learn from sport in general, and tennis is such an individual sport, so a lot of the time you’re on your own. There’s really nothing like it in terms of education.”

That same evening, Serena Williams was spotted joining Gigi Hadid and her rumored boyfriend Tyler Cameron for dinner.
