Retirement in 2005....

Certain:

Lindsay Davenport (USOPEN or year-end)
Magdalena Maleeva (interview; date not exactly known; pobably end of 2005)
Paola Suarez (thread about Paola and Vivi wants to stop her)

Probable:

Conchita Martinez (read an article)
Mary Pierce (isn't getting younger)
Chanda Rubin (health problems)
Martina Navratilova (given her recent results)
Silvia Farina Elia (there have been rumours since 2001)

Quite a list.

Do you think that is probable?

If Chanda retires this year it will be a shame. I hope her knee will hold up and let her play at least one more season (2006) being completely injury-free.

i think Davenport is likely to continue as long as she keeps winning.

Farina also has not indicated she wants to retire, and she is playing well.

Especially if Lindsay wins the US Open, I see her playing some in 2006.

Conchita said that this could be her last season, but the following week she won Pattaya and them beat Asagoe, Myskina or Dechy so she changed her mind and said that wasn't for sure

Paola said she will probably retire in 2006, though 2005 isn't out of the question, in those articles about her wanting to retire and Vivi trying to stop her. So, hopefully she won't retire until 2006!!

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!
Vivi & Paola ~ Holders of the record number of consecutive US Opens in the open

So, basically, just a few wil go for sure, but it could very, very much be a "good-bye year", right?

Els will quit singles for sure at the end of the year, but might continue for one more in doubles

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
