Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych announced his retirement from tennis.
Berdych confirmed the decision at the ATP Masters, having hinted on social media this week that the reports about his retirement were spot on.
The 34-year-old Czech tennis player reached the final at Wimbledon in 2010, defeating Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic before falling to Rafael Nadal for the title.
He reached the semi-finals at least once in the other three Grand Slam tournaments and won 13 titles in his career, in which he reached number 4 in the world.
However, he has not played since losing in the first round at the US Open in August and is currently ranked 103rd. AP
