Former Top 20 player Igor Andreev has announced he will retire at the end of the season. The 30-year-old Russian has been plagued by a series of injuries since he reached the Roland Garros quarterfinals in 2007.

Andreev has won three ATP titles and reached a career-high rank of No. 18. Currently ranked No. 991, Andreev's lone tour-level main-draw match this season was a first-round loss at Wimbledon to Lukasz Kubot.

“This is my last year due to various factors and circumstances,” Andreev told NTV-Plus. “During the last few years there have been a lot of injuries, which played a decisive role. But life goes on, I want to stay in the sport.”
