New chapter: Peter Bothwell is excited about stepping into coaching

Peter Bothwell has announced his retirement from professional tennis at the age of just 24.

The Hillsborough man, who has been based at the Soto Academy in Spain for the last six years, will now turn his attention to a new career in coaching.

Bothwell should have plenty to offer on that front after a successful stint as a professional on the tour which saw him travel across the globe, reaching an all-time high in singles of just outside the world's top 600 in 2018.
