A pillar of professionalism, Julia Goerges retires.

Julia Goerges has announced her retirement, ending a 15-year career that that saw her break into the Top 10, make a Wimbledon semifinal, capture seven WTA singles titles, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder alongside Germany's Golden Generation of talent, with Angelique Kerber, Andrea Petkovic, and Sabine Lisicki.

Goerges leaves behind a legacy of professionalism and respect that left an indelible mark on the WTA locker room, as evidenced by the outpouring of well-wishes from her colleagues and friends.

Goerges joins the podcast to reflect on her decision to hang up her trusty Babolat racquets, detail what it was like playing in the long shadow of Stefanie Graf, and why her straight-shooting ways left a mark on the tour's younger generation.
