Magdalena Rybarikova tocmai a anunţat pe reţelele de socializare că se retrage din activitate [postarea, la sfârşitul ştirii].

Jucătoarea slovacă în vârstă de 32 de ani se clasează acum pe locul 199 WTA. Nu mai jucase de la US Open 2019 şi părăsise top 100 pe 24 iunie 2019.
Avea de gând să se retragă la Turneul Final al Billie Jean King Cup, dar situaţia actuală i-a dat acest plan peste cap.

Cariera ei a fost una rodnică – clasament maxim: 17 WTA / martie 2018 – atunci când nu a fost întreruptă de accidentări, destul de numeroase: a câştigat 4 titluri WTA, toate de categoria International – Birmingham 2009 (iarbă), Memphis 2011, Washington 2012 şi 2013 – şi a mai jucat în alte 4 finale, dintre care două Premier; New Haven 2014 şi Birmingham 2018. În afara turneului din Marea Britanie – devenit Premier în 2014 – restul s-au jucat pe hard.

Tot pe iarbă a obţinut şi cea mai bună performanţă a carierei la un turneu de Grand Slam: semifinale la Wimbledon 2017.

A câştigat 426 de meciuri în circuitul WTA (307 înfrângeri), 10 la jucătoare din top 10, dintre care două la unele din top 5 WTA: la Simona Halep (2) în turul 2 al Premier New Haven 2014 şi Karolina Pliskova (3) – în turul 2 al Wimbledon 2017.

La Wimbledon 2006 a fost finalistă în proba junioarelor, dar debutase deja în circuitul profesionist al senioarelor, la ITF 10k Timişoara 2004, unde a ajuns în sferturi, după ce trecuse de calificări.

A câştigat premii financiare în valoare de 5.252.044 USD (simplu şi dublu) de-a lungul carierei.

Hello guys! As some of you may know, i haven’t been playing competitive tennis for over an year now. I was hoping to play the Fed Cup Finals in Budapest as last event of my carrier, unfortunately the whole situation around covid 19 has changed those plans. After carefully analyzing the various scenarios, i have decided to put an end to my professional tennis career. After almost 15 years of many ups and some downs, i am incredibly grateful for everything this amazing sport has given me. Besides meeting lots of nice and interesting people all over the world, i experienced amazing emotions, starting by winning my first tournament as a small girl all the way to reaching the semifinal of wimbledon in 2017. Even though there obviously were some tough moments with lots of injuries, uncertainties and sacrifices, i wouldn’t wanna miss a single second of his amazing journey. I wanna thank my family for always supporting me, all my coaches for trying to get the best out of me on the court and Kristian Cupak, who made sure i was fit enough to do so and was part of my team for almost my entire career. A special thanks goes to Lotto (clothing sponsor), Yonex (tennis equipment) and all the other sponsors, not to forget the slovak tennis federation who helped me at the beginning of the journey. Last but not least i want to thank all the fans for supporting me in good and not so good times, encouraging me during matches and through the various media channels, they always helped me going the extra step when i thought i couldn’t do it anymore. I’m leaving with a big smile on my face and am very much looking forward to see what the next chapter of my life will hold. Have fun, be well and stay healthy! Slovenská verzia v komente 👇
