(REUTERS) – Former second seed women’s tennis player Adnieska Radwanska announced on Wednesday that she has decided to retire due to health reasons, after a 13-year career.
The 29-year-old has struggled with form and fitness recently and has not lifted a single title since Oct. 2016.
“Unfortunately, I am no longer able to train and play the way I used to, and recently my body can’t live up to my expectations,” said Rawanska in a Facebook post. “Taking into consideration my health and the heavy burdens of professional tennis, I have to concede that I’m not able to push my body to the limits required”
Radwansksa was the first ever Polish player to reach a Grand Slam singles final in the Open Era, when she finished as runner-up against Serena Williams in the 2012 Wimbledon tournament.
The tennis star was considered one of the most consistent players and amongst her accomplishments are 20 World Tennis Association (WTA) titles and two-time Australian Open semi-finalist.
