Marion Bartoli has announced her retirement from tennis at the age of 28 – less than six weeks after winning Wimbledon.

“It’s time for me to retire and call it a career. I feel it’s time for me to walk away actually.”

 

Bartoli blamed a succession of injuries for her decision to call it a day – citing in particular an Achilles problem which was troubling her on the hardcourts.

“My body just can’t do it anymore,” she said. “I’ve already been through a lot of injuries since the beginning of the year. I’ve been on the tour for so long, and I really pushed through and left it all during that Wimbledon.

Caleb Moore (January 1, 1987 – January 31, 2013) was an American professional snowmobile racer and the first person to die as a result of injuries sustained during the X Games.

Moore was injured on January 24, 2013, during the Snowmobile Freestyle part of Winter X Games XVII which were held in Aspen, Colorado. He was attempting a backflip (a trick he had done several times before) when the skis on his snowmobile were snagged on the ground as he was about to land. As a result, Moore was flipped over the handlebars and landed on the ground. He was then hit by the snowmobile. His brother Colten also was injured on the same day, sustaining a separated pelvis.

Moore was able to leave the scene under his own strength and he was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for a concussion. Doctors later discovered bleeding around the heart, and he was diagnosed with a heart contusion. He was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital, where he underwent surgery. Later, it was announced by a family spokesman that he had developed a complication in his brain. His condition deteriorated and he died at the age of 26 on January 31, 2013.

ALLEN IVERSON AND HIS MOTHER ANN IVERSON

According to Yahoo Sports,  basketball star Allen Iverson has reportedly gone from 11-time NBA all-star to financial deadbeat. The Philadelphia 76ers icon was recently ordered to pay over $860,000 to a jeweler, and he couldn’t cut a check.

A Georgia judge has ordered Iverson to be seized, so the relatively little money he has left will be garnished, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Iverson was among the biggest superstars in the NBA, earning more than $154 million during a professional career that began back in 1996. (This doesn’t include endorsement money and other business deals.)

Iverson traveled with one of the biggest posses in professional sports. Bill Lyon of the Philadelphia Inquirer says the group has as many as 50 people for some Sixers home games.  Iverson even took a hair stylist on the road and, also loved to buy jewelry for himself and his  mother, Ann.
