Nalbandian quits due to injury
Former Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian has announced his retirement from tennis, citing a shoulder injury as the reason behind his decision.
The 31-year-old Argentinian announced his arrival on the tennis circuit in 2002 when he surprised many by reaching the final at SW19, where he lost out to Lleyton Hewitt.
He was also a semi-finalist in the other grand slams - the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open - and climbed as high as third in the world in March, 2006.
Nalbandian, who has tumbled down the rankings to 231, told a press conference in Buenos Aires: "It's a sad day but the shoulder is not responding well.
"As a result I can no longer compete at ATP level."
Nalbandian won 11 singles titles on the ATP Tour, the last one coming in Washington three years ago.
