Tennis - Former WTA star and top Hungarian player Agnes Szavay was honoured on the finals day at the WTA Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest on Sunday. Szavay retired from the sport earlier this year after struggling for a few years with back injuries.
Szavay won 5 WTA tour titles in her career and peaked at no. 13 in the rankings in 2007-2008. Speaking at the ceremony, "It's a big honor for me to get this present from the WTA. It feels really good to be here.
I had some of my best memories in Budapest - I won this tournament two times. My other great memories were winning in Beijing, beating Venus Williams at the French Open and playing the quarterfinals at the US Open. Also the WTA's Newcomer Of The Year award in 2007.
I just have so many good memories of playing tennis and being on the tour." "I've started organizing camps for little kids - I want to keep going in that direction because I enjoy it and love it," she added.
"I'm really enjoying staying at home. I really prefer to stay at home - I don't like travelling so much anymore. But you may see me at a few tournaments in the future, we will see what happens!" .
