MADRID - Former world No. 1 star Carlos Moya announced his retirement from tennis on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old Spaniard has been plagued by a foot injury and decided that 15 years was enough on the ATP World Tour.

"It's not how I dreamt of ending my career," said Moya, who hadn't titled on the tour since 2007 and reached a final since 2008.

The 6-foot-3 Palma de Mallorca native captured the 1998 French Open, was the runner-up at the 1997 Australian Open, and helped Spain capture a Davis Cup title in 2004. He went 20-24 in 44 career finals on the circuit, which he joined back in 1995.

Moya, who was ranked No. 1 for two weeks back in 1999, earned just under $13.444 million in career prize money and finished inside the year-end top 10 on five occasions.
