She obviously achieved all she wanted,3 Grand Slams including the recent Oz Open and a few WTA titles.
She doesn’t want to keep travelling on the WTA tour anymore and and have to spend months away from her fiancé,family (and her dogs)
She was always well behaved on court,she never behaved like a spoiled brat,smashing her racquet if a point didn’t go her way nor did she ever swear at umpires,
Nick Kyrgios could learn a lot from her about how to behave on court

I hope Wimbledon stand their ground. They made a difficult but brave decision. I support it. I don’t think ATP/WTA come away from that decision looking good.

Leading tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou has admitted coaching from the stands has been going on “for decades” as the ATP moves towards legalising the practice.

Men’s tennis will trial ‘off-court’ coaching through the second half of the season, with coaching permitted from designated seats from July.

It means coaching will be permitted at the final grand slam of the year, the US Open in August.

The ATP has announced verbal coaching will only be permitted when the player is at the same end of the court, while hand signals will be allowed at any time.

They are killing the sport slowly…
