Former Breakers MVP Nicole Gibbs Retires

Posted on February 22, 2021

On Monday, February 15th long time Breaker player Nicole Gibbs announced her retirement at the age of 27. Gibbs reached a career high No. 68 on the WTA tour which was achieved in 2016. Before Gibbs turned pro she won the NCAA singles championship playing for Stanford University. Gibbs turned pro in 2013 and won a total of seven titles during her eight year career. Unfortunately, in 2019 Gibbs was diagnosed with oral cancer but she made a full recovery. Gibbs played in many World TeamTennis seasons and had an incredible career.

Gibbs is a World TeamTennis legend. She competed for the Breakers from 2015-2019, after being selected as a 1st round draft pick in 2015. Gibbs was named World TeamTennis MVP in 2016 and won the title with the Breakers in 2017. 2017 was the third year in a row Gibbs was in the finals losing the two previous years in 2015 and 2016 respectively. It has been a great honor to have Gibbs competing for us. We wish her all the best, in all of her future endeavours. We will miss you, thank you for all the memories!!
