The WTA was quick to pay tribute to Ana Ivanovic after the former world number one announced her retirement from professional tennis on Wednesday.

Ivanovic, the French Open champion in 2008 and twice a losing finalist in grand slams, confirmed the end of her career in a video broadcast on her official Facebook page, citing injury troubles as the reason for her decision.

Her career, which featured 480 match wins and 15 titles, was duly celebrated in a video released by the WTA via Twitter.
