Carlos Moya calls it quits!

Carlos Moya has announced his retirement because of a persistent foot injury. “It’s not how I dreamt of ending,” said the 34-year-old, who beat fellow Spaniard Alex Corretja in straight sets in the 1998 French final.

Moya, runner-up at the Australian Open the previous year, went on to briefly become world number one in 1999. In 2004, he helped Spain win the Davis Cup but was plagued by injuries in the later stages of his 15-year career. Moya, who was born in Majorca like current world number one Rafael Nadal, made his last appearance on the ATP tour at the Madrid Masters in May, when he lost to Germany’s Benjamin Becker in the opening round. He plans to play one more tournament in Seville next month before calling it quits. “I wanted to say goodbye at one of the big tournaments, the Grand Slams, but that dream wasn’t to be,”

“I am still young for life but for sport, I am already knocking on a bit.”
