Kiki Bertens says that 2021 will be her last year on WTA Tour

World No.20 Kiki Bertens says that her “tank is quite empty” and 2021 season will be her last on the WTA Tour.

The highest-ranked Dutchwoman in WTA history said on social media:

The balance of the hard work I put in day in and day out and the satisfaction I get out of it at the end of the day is no longer there. Also, I am more than ready for the chapter that comes next after this.

Had there not been the COVID-19 pandemic, the 29-year-old Bertens would have played several more seasons.
