Mauresmo Considering Retiring From Tennis

Former No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo is considering retiring from tennis.

The Frenchwoman, who is currently ranked No. 20, decided Thursday to scratch her last two tournaments of the season, at Linz and Luxembourg.

Mauresmo said on her Web site: "Since I came back from the U.S. Open, I've been trying to practice but I can't find again the desire to come back to competition. I don't want to rush or force things. (I will take) some time to think before making a decision regarding the remainder of my career."

The 30-year-old Mauresmo won two Grand Slam titles in 2006, at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
