France’s two-time grand slam winner and former world number one Amelie Mauresmo announced her retirement from tennis on Thursday.

“I came here to announce the end of my career. I made this decision after careful consideration,” Mauresmo told a news conference before bursting into tears.

Mauresmo, 30, topped the WTA rankings in September 2004 and clinched her two grand slam titles in 2006 when she won the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

She collected 25 WTA singles titles since turning professional in 1993.
