Grosjean ends his pro tennis career

Sebastien Grosjean has retired at his home French Open, ending an injury-plagued career that peaked in the world rankings at No. 4.
The 31-year-old Grosjean, who advanced to the semifinals at the French Open, Wimbledon and the Australian Open, was scheduled to play in doubles at the French this week but his partner Richard Gasquet withdrew from the tournament.
Grosjean, who reached his highest ATP ranking in 2002, said on Thursday his "body doesn't allow me to play tennis anymore" after dropping to 549th.
Grosjean won four tournaments, including one Masters Series in Paris, and helped France to win the Davis Cup in 2001.
