David Nalbandian, who at one-time was ranked No. 3 in the world, announced Tuesday in his native Argentina that he will retire from tennis next month.
The 31-year-old never won a Grand Slam championship, though he did reach the semifinals in all four majors. He rolled to the finals of Wimbledon in 2002, eventually falling to Lleyton Hewitt.
He is also known for an unfortunate incident that occurred at the 2012 Aegon Championship at the Queens Club in England, when, in the final against Marin Cilic, Nalbandian kicked an on-court advertising board in a fit of rage. The board subsequently struck the shin of a linesman, eventually leading to Nalbandian's disqualification.
According to the Associated Press, Nalbandian cited recurrent shoulder injuries as reason for his retirement.
