With tears, Bertens said goodbye to Tokyo and said goodbye to tennis

Possibly if I was looking for something Kiki bertens is that his stay at the Olympics passed with the slowest pace in the world. It is that once his participation ended, the end of his path would come. And it came. With the defeat in her debut against Marketa Vondrousova, the Dutch retired from tennis at 29 years old, as a result of recurring injuries..

With tears in her eyes, Bertens withdrew from an empty stadium after a 6-4, 3-6 and 6-4 that was in favor of the Czech. The image that was seen was shocking, fundamentally because of the way and age in which he was fired, since had it not been for the injuries he would surely have stretched his career for several more years.

Her journey left her 10 titles in the showcase and the honor of having become No. 4 in the world just two years ago. At the Grand Slam, his best performance came in 2016, at Roland Garros, at which point he reached the semi-finals.

In this way, a tennis player who usually started as one of the great protagonists of each tournament, puts the end to her history in tennis.
