Rebecca Marino Steps Away From Tennis
February 21, 2013 - Rebecca Marino of Vancouver, BC, announced that she is quitting tennis because of depression and bullying on social media. Rebecca revealed that she is dealing with depression for the past four years.

The 22-year-old Rebecca was ranked 38th in the world in 2011 and was a two-time Tennis Canada Female Player of the year.  She began playing tennis at the age of 10 and went on to win the 2006 Stanley Park Open when she was only 15.

In February of 2012, Rebecca decided to take a break from the game to recover from physical and mental fatigue.  For three months, she didn't go near the practice courts. Rebecca made her return seven months later and captured the singles title at the $25,000 Rock Hill Challenger.

While we will miss her in the game, we wish her the best in whatever she chooses to do next in life.
