Benjamin Mitchell has announced on Facebook that he is retiring from professional tennis.

Ben made it to a career high of 20 in the world for juniors and 204 in seniors for singles and 303 for doubles. Ben spent the last five year floating around the 200 in the world mark, but was unable to really break through to the next level.

At senior level he captured 10 Future and Challenger titles as well as reaching the final of the Wimbledon Junior tournament in 2010.

Ben has had an amazing career and he is now looking to help the next generation of tennis professionals reach the world elite.

Congrats!

Roger Federer always impresses. Today Roger was 2 sets to love down against Marin Cilic and again he finds a way to win and go into the Wimbledon 2016 Semi-final.

Marin had his chances and was playing some amazing tennis in the first two sets, but struggled to maintain that level of play across the five sets.
