Cibulkova, nekadašnja četvrta teniserka sveta, u karijeri je osvojila osam WTA titula, 2014. godine je igrala finale Australijan open, a ove je došla do polufinala Rolan Garosa.

Slovakinja je na zvaničnom Instagram profilu napisala poruku svim navijačima širom sveta.

"Danas sa pomešanim osećanjima imam posebne vesti da vam podelim. Kao što znate, nisam odigrala nijedan turnir mesecima. Sve je krenulo od povrede ahilove tetive, koja mi je dovela u jedan od najtežih momenata u životu – trebalo je da odlučim šta da uradim sa teniskom karijerom. Posle mnogo razmišljanja i podrške koju sam dobila od porodice i prijatelja odlučila sam da se više ne vratim na teren kao takmičarka", napisala je između ostalog Cibulkova.

Cibulkova je 2016. godine osvojila Završni turnir, a u karijeri je još igrala četvrtfinala Vimbldona tri puta i četvrtfinale US opena 2010. godine.

Ostvarila je 450 pobeda, uz 299 poraza, a na WTA turu je bila od 2004, odnosno od 15 godine.

Today, with mixed feelings, I have special news to share with you all. As you know I haven’t been playing tournaments for several months. What started as a recurring Achilles injury, developed into one of the most difficult moments in my life – deciding on what to do with my tennis career. After a lot of thinking, talks, and support from my family, friends, and my team, I have finally decided that I will not be returning to the courts as a competitive player. It is a moment filled with so many feelings - saddness, fear of the unknown, but also excitement of what life will bring in the future. I was one of the luckiest kids to stumble upon the road of a tennis player thanks to my wonderful parents and I will be forever grateful for their unconditional support. They did everything possible to keep me moving forward no matter how big the obstacles that stood in the way. I was also very fortunate to have a whole « village » of wonderful people around me who helped shape my career and help me achieve goals and dreams that children dream about. I am chosing today as the day I announce my retirement from tennis because this is also a day on which my biography is being launched with all of the details about my career. Writing the book was a journey on its own because it also brought lots of emotions and took a significant effort to open up about my personal life. I am honored to share this special book with all my fans. I am looking forward to step into the next part of my life and take on new challenges, spend happy times with my family, friends, making new friends, visiting new places, and making new memories. I will miss the support of my fans on the tennis court but will never forget you because tennis will always be a part of me. Pomeeee ;) New chapter begins now…. ❤️
