AB de Villiers All Set to Return  Brand New Sport

AB de Villiers And Ashleigh Barty

It is no surprise that de Villiers describes Barty as one of his close friends since Barty – who is also a three-time Grand Slam winner – has taken a break from his tennis career to play cricket for the Brisbane Heat in the 2015-16 Big Bash.

However, it appears that the exit is final this time.

In a phone interview with AFP, de Villiers said, “It’s a weird one to explain.”.

“I think the best answer is that each person has a different strategy to navigate through their career, and some use it for as long as possible. I respect the decision she made. While I would like to think stepping away would be a relief, it is a very late age to retire.”
