Julien Benneteau's career is expected to finish this year. The French player, who turned 36 in December last year, is enjoying his last months on the ATP Tour before the official retirement and perhaps the start of a new chapter in life.
Interviewed by Golf+ Le Mag to speak about the Augusta Masters, Benneteau revealed when and where he will end his career. 'If I make it for the US Open, I will go to New York for the last time. It will be my last tournament', said Benneteau.
Last year Julien reached the Masters 1000 Paris Bercy semifinals, which allowed him to jump in the rankings from the 83rd place to 56th. He plans to play the remaining three Grand Slams this year (Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open), and his career will finish.
In his singles career, he lost ten ATP finals out of ten, but achieved a career-high ranking at No. 25 in 2014. In doubles he was world No. 5 in 2014 and in the same year he won the Roland Garros title. ALSO READ: Novak Djokovic and Radek Stepanek split!
