Spain's former world No 1 and Wimbledon and French Open champion Garbine Muguruza announced her retirement at a news conference Saturday, making the extended break she had announced a year ago a permanent step.

Venezuelan-born Muguruza won the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017, and also reached the final of the Australian Open in 2020.

Last April she said she would take a break from competition to spend more time with her family.

"I didn't miss the discipline and the difficulty of the life I had before. I have been realizing that what I most want to look forward to is my next chapter and not the tennis chapter," she said at a news conference in Madrid.

Muguruza, 30, was ranked No 1 in 2017 and was ranked as high as third by the end of 2021 when she won three Women's Tennis Association titles.
