Chile’s Nicolas Massu announced his retirement at a press conference in Santiago, where he was said to have broken down in tears. In 2004, Massu won the singles and doubles gold medal (with Fernando Gonzalez) at the Athens Olympics.
 
“I made the tough decision when I realized it wasn’t possible to return to my best level and I had exhausted all efforts,” the 33-year-old said.
