Wimbledon champ Bartoli retires after latest loss

MASON, Ohio (AP) -- Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli has retired from tennis after losing her latest match at the Western & Southern Open.

The 28-year-old player from France has suffered through a series of injuries even as she enjoyed the highlight of her career this year, winning at Wimbledon. She was seeded eighth in Cincinnati and lost to Simona Halep 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Wednesday.

After two hours of considering her physical condition, she tearfully announced she's quitting. Bartoli said her Achilles, shoulder, hips and lower back hurt continuously when she plays.
