World number one wheelchair tennis player Dylan Alcott will retire after the Australian Open in January. The Australian player Alcott has won all four types of Grand Slams. He has won seven quad singles in a row and will look to make it eight during the Australian Open coming in as a favorite. The Australian also won a Gold in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
The Australian Open changed my life, tennis changed my life. Without tennis I wouldn't be here sitting and talking with you today, potentially sitting here at all. "I owe it everything, and what better way to finish in my home city in front of crowds, big, big crowds after the year that we had, the last couple of years. It's going to be incredible. I feel redundant, I feel old, I feel a bit washed up. It's their turn to dominate and get the recognition they deserve, so really looking forward to getting out there and doing my thing one more time, and hopefully making it 16.
