Hungarian player Agnes Szavay announced her retirement from tennis via her website. She does not expect a 100% recovery from surgery to fix a nagging back injury. As such, she’s ready to focus on the next chapter of her life and career, where she plans to develop a tennis academy and work with children:
I am confident that I have acquired the knowledge and experience I’ll be able to give to the next generation.Therefore, my big dream to do a tennis school and deal with children. I believe this now is the time, though they did not planned to retire so early. I know this will be a big change in my life, but I have plans and I will take it done, so I will soon be able to hear much about the Szavay Tennis Academy.
Flashback: One of our first TSF fashion moments came from Agi, who burst onto the scene ala Mona Barthel and Camila Giorgi (and as of late, a little bit, Vania King) wearing logo-less dresses during matches. Szavay’s clothes were designed by Marta Makany. She wore a few different dresses during that run into the 2007 U.S. Open quarterfinals, where she lost to Kuznetsova.
We wish Agi the best in her future plans.
