Polish tennis player Agnieszka Radwanska said on Wednesday that she has made a decision to end her 13 year-long career due to health reasons.

Considered the most successful tennis player in Polish history, the 29-year-old released a statement on Twitter Wednesday highlighting the physical toll of training and playing on tour.

"Unfortunately I am no longer able to train and play the way I used to, and recently my body can't live up to my expectations", Radwanska wrote. "Taking into consideration my health and the heavy burdens of professional tennis, I have to concede that I'm not able to push my body to the limits required". She reached the Wimbledon final in 2012, losing to Serena Williams in three sets. I hope that my tennis matches were the source of emotions and joy for you all. Thank you for every sleepless night in front of the TV and all those Fan Favorite awards - that was the biggest honour and best reward for my hard work.

Radwanska won 20 WTA titles in her career. In addition to her Wimbledon exploits, she reached the semifinals of the Australian Open twice, the quarterfinals of the French Open once, and also regularly featured in the second week of the US Open.
