Doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic could be ending his career after Wimbledon

Doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic could be ending his career in 2017. Should the 40-year-old perform well and achieve some notable results this season, he'd open to delaying his retirement. Zimonjic achieved a career high ranking of number one in the world in doubles in 2008 -- and has 53 titles to his name in the competition.

The Serbian tennis player ended last season without a won title - came into this year's season as number 61 in the world in doubles. ''Maybe the third or fourth oldest player (on the ATP Tour),'' Zimonjic told SportKlub.

''As long as there's, let's say, a motivation, love for the sport, the desire to compete -- I will be on the court ... of course as long as my body allows me to be. If the results are the same as in 2016 ... I will probably stop playing -- that could happen by the end of Wimbledon.'' ''I'm very optimistic -- I think I'll succed in getting back (to good form).'' Zimonjic ended losing in the quarter-finals of Doha with David Marrero this week to Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares.
