Clijsters retires after Antwerp

That's if you translate this dutch article in "Het Nieuwsblad" literally. I think they forgot to add: after Antwerp 2008 right?????? I hope this is just an error

http://www.nieuwsblad.be/GT/Index.as...cleID=GPNO4V4U

Kim Clijsters stopt met tennissen

Kim Clijsters heeft aangekondigd dat ze na de Diamond Games in Antwerpen voorgoed stopt met tennissen. De kwetsuur die ze vorige maand tijdens het tennistoernooi van Sydney opliep, was de druppel die de emmer deed overlopen. ,,Ik heb er echt geen zin meer in om voortdurend gekwetst te zijn'', zei Kim gisteren in een tv-interview. ,,Daarom heb ik besloten volgende maand mijn tennisracket aan de haak te hangen.'' Kim gaat in mei voor al haar fans nog een groot tuinfeest geven in Bree.

="That's why I decided to retire next month"

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.

No, I am sure if that was the case she would have made a statement on her website.

It's hard to believe! I think that paper is mistaken

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I'm afraid the article indeed does seem to say that Kim will retire after this year's edition of the Diamond Games, but I haven't seen this being confirmed by any other Belgian news channel! So let's hope it's just a mistake...

I really doubt it myself, but it possibility right? She treats everyone on champagne and then retires...

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.

Hope it's not right

I didn't find anything in any other newspaper or tv channel, so it's probably a huge error or completey invented by the journalist
