If one connects tennis with India, one of the first few names to pop in your head will definitely include Leander Paes.
Leander Paes took the sport to another level in his outstanding career of 20 years. A role model to millions, the star player is bidding farewell to tennis in 2020.
The 46 year-old has made the nation proud with his achievements, but suffered a rough patch in the last three years. He couldn’t find a good doubles partner who could help him rise higher in the ATP men’s doubles rankings.
Finally, Paes is putting curtains down on his illustrious career after becoming the most successful doubles player in the history of Davis Cup with 44 wins under his hood. Along with this, he has 18 Grand Slam titles and seven Olympic medals in which one medal is from the singles men’s event.
Wishing his fans and followers a Merry Christmas, the ace tennis player broke the news of his retirement through an Instagram post with an emotional note.
We will remember you, Leander Paes!
