Camille Pin has announced her retirement from professional tennis after a 12 year career.
Pin’s last match was a first round doubles loss at the French Open. Pin, who never won a title on the WTA Tour, said “it’s a very special day for me, because it’s such a tough decision.”
Pin had mainly focused on doubles lately, having reached a career-high singles ranking of 61st in 2007. She was not entered in the singles draw at Roland Garros.
Tennis is a very difficult sport to make a solid living from, especially if you are hovering around 100 or 200 in the world in doubles.
