Magnus Norman retired from tennis Thursday because of hip and knee injuries after a career in which he reached No. 2 in the rankings and was the 2000 French Open runner-up. Norman, 28, also made the Australian Open semifinals that year, when he spent three weeks atop the ATP Champions Race and briefly was second in the entry rankings.
