Has Elena Tatarkova retired ?

She did not have a great year in 2004 and I can't find her on any of the current entry lists.

Perhaps she has decided to play doubles only.

Does anyone know anything?

She's not retired, as far as I know. She plays some qualifying events, etc.

actually she had a better year in singles last year than in most of the previous five years.
But she is 28 and has been playing tennis her whole life, maybe she decided to stop.
