PARIS (AP) - French tennis player Nathalie Dechy is retiring.

The French tennis federation said in a statement Tuesday that the 30-year-old Dechy has decided to end her career as she is expecting a child and wants to devote her time to family life.

Dechy reached the Australian Open semifinals in 2005, but is currently ranked 88th.

Dechy won the Gold Coast singles tournament in 2003 and two Grand Slam doubles titles at the U.S. Open - with Vera Zvonareva in 2006, and Dinara Safina in 2007. She also won mixed doubles at the French Open in 2007.

Dechy played for France in the Fed Cup in singles and doubles from 2000 until this year.
