The present 2019 is going to be remembered as the year in which some great tennis players decided to leave their rackets behind and retire. After David Ferrer, Nicolas Almagro, and Marcos Baghdatis, who all announced their retirement earlier this year, the 35-year-old Janko Tipsarević decided to the same after a string of leg injuries that hampered his consistency in the last several years.

The former world number 8 and 2010 Davis Cup champion, Janko Tipsarević is currently playing his last tournament on the APT Tour in Stockholm. Tipsarević looks highly motivated to go out with a bang, as he has won his first two matches relatively easy. 

He also took out the first seed Fabio Fognini 6–1, 6–1 in the second round, and is now expecting a quarter-finals duel against Yuichi Sugita. If he wins, the Serbian player will potentially play Denis Shapovalov in the semis.

Tipsarević had only recorded five wins this season prior to Stockholm, and this will be only his second quarter-final of the year. While this will officially be his last ATP appearance, Janko also announced that he would like to play for Serbia in the Davis Cup finals in November.

Tipsarević has won four tournaments over the course of his 17-year-long career. His best ATP ranking was 8th, and he has reached the ATP Finals twice – in 2011 and 2012.

Hi, I’m Stefan, and I live for sports. No… I’m serious, I literally live for sports. I grew up within a family unit where my mom was an avid tennis player, my father played football, and my uncles and aunts (all who visited us fairly regularly) played basketball and table tennis at a competitive level. So when we weren’t playing sports, we were watching it. And when we weren’t watching sports, we were listening to it on the radio in the car. So sports have always been a part of the fabric of not only my childhood, but also my adult life too. Personally, I can play most sports. But my favorite is tennis. Here at The Sporty, I’ll be using my all-rounder sports skills to bring you the latest and greatest from the world of sports. But I will also do my best to cover as much tennis related news as I can. So that’s me in a nutshell - game, set and match.
