I quit, says Coria
Guillermo Coria, the 2004 French Open finalist, has announced his retirement from tennis at the age of 27.
The Argentine favourite, who reached world number three status in the same year he lost to Gaston Gaudio at Roland Garros, says he no longer has the motivation to carry on at the top level.
"I didn't feel like competing anymore," said Coria, who won nine titles during his career including in his home town of Buenos Aires said. "I've made the decision I will not play again.
"In 2005 I began to feel less and less like competing. My passion just wasn't the same and it's impossible to do things well when it's like that. In this sport, you have to be at 100 per cent.
"I'm very happy with the decision I've taken. I have new projects and I will be able to spend more time with my family."
