Sorry to hear that you have to hang it up, but (1.) if I had to choose between another year of tennis and dealing with severe knee pain/injury the rest of my life I'd have made the same choice, and (2.) not many players ever get close to playing at 5.0 so you've had a good run. Best of luck to you in cycling/swimming/golf.
