Wimbledon winner Marion Bartoli made a shock retirement announcement on Wednesday, shortly after losing in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters to Romania's Simona Halep.
The Frenchwoman, who won Wimbledon six weeks ago, dropped the bombshell after the 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 defeat.
"It's time for me to retire and to call it a career. I feel it's time for me to walk away actually," said the 28-year-old. "My body just can't do it anymore."
