After a glittering career that saw her complete a career Grand Slam, win 36 WTA titles, and spend 21 weeks as the WTA World No.1, Maria Sharapova announced her retirement from tennis this week.

You can read the touching farewell she wrote to the sport here.

What an unbelievable career for the 32-year-old Russian, who battled through injuries the whole way. The farewells and tributes poured in this week. 😭

Oh, and she also won Wimbledon when she was 17. years. old. I mean, come on!

Retire on Monday, Shark Tank on Saturday? I’m here for it!

Still trying to get the tears under control too, Maria. 🥺 All the best in retirement!

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Leylah Annie Fernandez has been taking the tennis world by storm in 2020 . She’ll play for a spot in her first WTA final on Friday night in Mexico!

Two finals in two weeks for the always entertaining Felix Auger-Aliassime. Take a well deserved week off, FAA!

The Djoker stretched his outrageous unbeaten streak to 17 in 2020, defeating Gael Monfils in a three-set marathon on Friday in Dubai. Probably could have been a pretty good soccer player too…

Djokovic can use his head, Nadal can use his feet…I see a future beyond tennis for the Grand Slam champs. Nadal is playing (and winning) in Mexico this week.

And, of course, Pospisil and maple syrup continued their loving partnership at the National Bank Challenger in Calgary this week. A match made in heaven if you ask me!
