Who are the players youd be happiest to see retire?

I will go first, Martina Narvatilova, not that I dont like her or anything, and she will always be an inspiration to me. But when she is retired, I will be happy just because she completed that diamond slams winning all doubles (mix, w) and singles in her career. I dont care to see her matches, because I have seen enough, in a positive sense

(No, I'm not talking about the players one hates or anything like that )

I would be happy to see Amanda Coetzer retire. She is one of my favs, and I hate to see one of my favs become shadows of their former selves. I guess that's why I was kinda glad to see Michael Chang quit the game.

Where is Amanda now anyways? Seems when she is playing she is a top 20 player

I hate topics like this. It boggles my mind why people actually WANT to see people retire. All these players have earned the right to play as long as they want because they love the game and still love competing at a high level because obviously they still have to work VERY hard to keep competing just on the WTA tour in general.

Capriati must go. We need all convicted criminals off the tour.

Queen Anne of Luxembourg. I Think The world of her, but she's unlikely to fully heal, and has a brighter future in other areas of life.

Martinez, Coetzer, Frazier, Brandi, Testud, Davenport, Pierce. I don't dislike any of these players (OK, mabye Martinez) but I think their time is up. Or very soon to be up.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
