Former World No. 4 James Blake announced his retirement today, at a press conference on the first day of the US Open.
“No real surprise here. This is my last tournament. I always wanted to end my career at the U.S. Open,” the 33-year-old American told reporters, adding, “Despite the tears, I’m actually really happy about this.”
When asked what he would like to do next, Blake mentioned either serving as captain of the US Davis Cup team, or going into broadcasting.
