Former world number one Juan Carlos Ferrero has revealed that he will retire from tennis next month.

The 32-year-old, who won the French Open in 2003, has admitted that injuries have taken their toll.

"This season injuries have prevented me from playing with regularity and it was a tough year as I realised on the court that I did not have the same ambition after 14 years at the top level," he told reporters.

Ferrero won 16 tour titles during a 14-year career.
