She took her departure on Instagram, uploading a post, and wrote, “Sport takes so much out of you…Mentally, physically, emotionally…The wins and the losses…hours of hard work and sleepless nights after tough losses. But it gives you soooo much in return that not many other ‘jobs’ can give you and for which i am forever grateful for the tears and the joy, the fight, and the struggle… The work we put in is all worth it in the end… It wasn’t meant to be this time @wimbledon but you have been nothing but spectacular. It has been an honor to play here and win here over the last 20 years… I will miss you until we meet again…”
