What's stopping Anna K coming back???

I mean she's playing a lot of exhibition matches also and i can't remember if she left the tour with injury - i think she did but i don't think it was as severe as Martina's.

Plus i want to see her reunite with Martina in doubles to create the unstoppable Spice Girls once again.

Surely Anna would not be happy with the way she left the tour - i mean i honestly believe she was a good player, she just needed to pull it together better in singles. It would be a tragedy if Anna never returned - get that first title girl!

Her doubles play was great, lot's of thought, she made the shots - no reason she can't transfer this to singles.

Anna left with a very severe back injury which ruďned her injury plagued carreer.

She's not coming back because she is not in top shape, like Martina is.
And she does not desire to comeback, as it seems.

She is still enjoying her life outside tennis, and she deserves to do so!

I was just kidding! I really do hope she comes back though. Can you imagine the media frenzy?

Anna's too busy being an 'it' girl

It's a shame because she certainly brought a special something to the game also - not just beauty. She was very vulnerable in the way she played and i enjoyed watching her tennis (except when she went through that double fault epidemic - she could have done without that).

She's not being an 'it' girl at all. You do not see Anna at EVERY premiere and EVERY party in Hollywood.

Anna is living a pretty quiet life. She does the occasional exhib doubles match. She does her occasional sponsor appearance. And sometimes comes to a moviepremiere or a fashion show.

That is not the life of an 'it' girl.

I didn't enjoy Anna in some matches towards the end.

I think the year where she lost to Henin at the Aussie, Wheeler at the French, Little-Russian-Player at Wimbledon and Widjaja at the USOPEN was really showing Anna not enjoying her carreer for whatever reason. She completely tanked that USOPEN match against Widjaja. It was horrible to watch.

But Anna brought something special to the game. And in her best days, she did compete with the best of the world.
