Dominika Cibulkova announces retirement

Former world No. 4 Dominika Cibulkova announced her retirement Tuesday, coinciding with the official launch of her new memoir.

It’s no surprise, as the 30-year-old Slovak hasn’t played a match since the French Open.

She told the WTA website that she had “100 per cent decided” to retire after that match in Paris, a loss to Aryna Sabalenka. 

But she’s only officially announcing it now.

Cibulkova has invested in a tennis academy and a nightclub, per the WTA interview.

She retires with eight WTA Titles – including the Tour Finals in 2016 – and nearly $14 million in prize money.
