Amelie Mauresmo is expected to announce whether or not she will continue her tennis career at a scheduled press conference on Thursday.

Paris : Two-time Grand Slam winner Amelie Mauresmo is expected to announce whether or not she will continue her tennis career at a scheduled press conference on Thursday.

Mauresmo announced in October she was skipping her final two tournaments of the season, and rumours have swirled since that she is considering hanging up her racquet for good.

The Frenchwoman got off to a good start early in the season, winning the Paris Indoor Open, but struggled to maintain her form.

The former world number one, winner of the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles, was dumped out of the second round of the US Open by Canada's Aleksandra Wozniak. It is Mauresmo's last match to date.

She is currently ranked 21st in the WTA rankings.
