Question Retirements- already a fw in 2005

First time in a few years that anumber of players are retiring who are still doing well as well as a few going into 'hiberanation'.

Maggie Maleeva, Zuluaga, Farina Callens Svensson and Schett have already announced their retirments.

Alicia Molik is having a break for a year and Lindsay Lee is headng off on Mat Leave.


Unoffical retirment notices have come through at various times of the year for Vento, Smashanova and now Randrianteffy.


Questions on retirement still linger for the spainish speaking trio of Vivi, Polly Surez and Martinez.

Rita Grande is also a big ? on her future.

Anyone else going to hang up the raquet?

Krizan? Dhenin? Frazier?

Looks like Dragomir has finished up as well.

Okay, let's look at the South Americans:

Zuluaga- retired
Diaz Oliva- retiring in 2006
Suarez- retiring in 2006 probably
Vento-Kabchi- possibly retiring at the end of this year
Fernandez- probably retiring soon
De Los Rios- probably retiring soon

who else is there to go for except for Catalina and Gisela? it's very depressing...probably has a lot to do with there only being 1 tournament there a year.
