FORMER BRITISH NUMBER ONE BALTACHA RETIRES

0

LONDON: Former British number one Elena Baltacha announced her retirement on Monday after struggling to recover from a series of injuries. Baltacha reached a career-high ranking of 49 in 2010 and won 11 singles titles during her career. But the Scot, whose Ukrainian father Sergei played football for Ipswich and St. Johnstone, had problems with injury and illness for several years and decided to hang up her racquet after another frustrating campaign in 2013. Baltacha now plans to dedicate herself to coaching and developing the tennis academy she founded in 2012 with her coach Nino Severino.
