Swedish tennis star Robin Söderling has announced his retirement from the sport.

Söderling has not played in more than 4 years, and now says he has given up all thoughts of a comeback.

"I've realized that I'm not going to be healthy enough to be able to play again at the level I want to," Söderling said.

The tennis star made it to the finals of the French Open in 2009 and 2010, and at the end of 2010 he was ranked 4 in the world, his highest placing in the ATP rankings.

After winning the 2011 Swedish Open, Söderling contracted mononucleosis, but continued to train. “Now I realize I ought to have listened more to my body,” he says in a press release. “The illness has made it impossible for me to return to 100 percent performance.”
