Nicole Vaidisova has announced her retirement from tennis once again, citing frequent injuries since she decided to return to the game.
The former world No. 7 and two-time Grand Slam semifinalist stopped playing in 2010 at 21 years old. She had two shoulder surgeries married fellow player Radek Stepanek, but then, single again, she decided to make a comeback two years ago.
Despite winning a main-draw match in Miami as a wild card a year ago, the former phenom has played only intermittently, and mostly at the International Tennis Federation level.
Following what she described as "months and months of thinking and agonizing about this," the 27-year-old Czech said on social media, "I have decided to retire from professional tennis."
