“It is a milestone in our sport and a joy for …”

Five new retirees: Steve Darcis, Martin Klizan, Julian Knowle, Paolo Lorenzi and Viktor Troicki were honored on Thursday at the Pala Alpitour during the Nitto ATP Finals. ATP President Andrea Gaudenzi presented each player with a frame celebrating their greatest successes before everyone went to Center Court for a special ceremony.

The last player on the pitch, Lorenzi, is Italian. The 39-year-old, who retired after this year’s US Open, climbed to 33rd place on the FedEx ATP rankings. Lorenzi wrote Kitzbühel history in 2016 when he became the oldest individual champion in the history of the ATP Tour at the age of 34 (since 1990).

“It’s unbelievable. I really missed the fans in New York, I played my last game without people,” Lorenzi told ATPTour.com. “It is very important for me to end with this ceremony here in Italy. I had time to say goodbye.” Everyone and I have had people close to me throughout my career.

I will miss you very much. “The top single player in the group was former world number 12 Viktor Troicki. The Serb won three individual tour titles in his career, including successive wins in Sydney in 2015 and 2016.

Former world number 24 Martin Klizan, who ended his career at Wimbledon this year, has won six ATP Tour titles. He celebrated his greatest triumph in 2016 in Rotterdam, where he scored four of his five wins in three sets. Rafael Nadal ended his season after performing in Washington.

He lost in the early stages because his foot injury had not yet fully healed. Because of this, he missed the US Open. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope that he will come back stronger in the coming 2022 season.

Nadal praises Garbine Muguruza

Garbine Muguruza, the 28-year-old Spaniard, has had a fantastic 2021 season.

She finished the season incredibly strong, winning the Chicago Fall Tennis Classic and then the year-end WTA Finals tournament in Mexico. She was praised for her achievements by one of the greatest Spanish players of all time, Rafael Nadal.

The 35-year-old said: “Very h -py for Garbiñe. It is a milestone in our sport and joy for Spanish tennis. Congratulations. It was a good year and with a good climax to win the last tournament of the year that was not reached and has a special meaning. “

Rafa praised Muguruza for a great season this year. After victories in Dubai and Chicago, winning the title in Mexico is certainly a great end to the season. All in all, Nadal was h -py because it was a proud day for Spanish tennis.
