Subject: Professional farewell letter.

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to bring to your knowledge my decision to retire from professional tennis from the DD/MM/YYYY. I have taken this decision with careful consideration of the pros and cons of the decision. I have decided that I have spent fifteen wonderful years of my life in professional tennis. I am also very grateful for having represented the United States in international tennis and to have won two gold medals for my countries in the Olympics.

I write this letter to thank you for your great mentorship and assistance in helping me reach my professional goals in tennis. I am forever grateful to you. I have also learned extraordinary techniques from you and you remain a trusted confidant in my professional life.

My decision to retire has been strongly supported by my parents and family members. Upon retirement, I wish to spend more time with my family members. I also wish to travel to different parts of the world to assess the quality and level of tennis education. I hope to open a tennis academy in the United States.

Until then, I am happy to write you this farewell letter.

Thank you,


Serena Williams.
