Did Dally Randriantefy retire?

She's not on the commitment lists for IW, Miami, or the green clay events.

In the last eight months she's only played the US Open, Luxembourg (a 2 hour drive from her place in France), and the Australian Open. Did she just decide to go down to Australia for one last big paycheck and call it a career?

Yeah, she apparently pulled out of Acapulco with a foot injury. She was on the IW and Miami lists but pulled out.

She's been considering retirement for a while, and when I spoke to her at the Open (THANKSAGAINDALLZ!), she said she would like to retire when she can... so I think she hasn't really retired yet, but it's probably coming soon.

Well, we can all visit her exhibit at the Tennis Hall of Fame one day and relive Dally nostalgia!

You know, she is just honestly the one of the nicest players I've met. She actually took the time to speak to me in my then even more halting French. Now, I would have told her my life's story if I had the chance lol J/K. Really, I think if she put in the work towards the remainder of the season particularly coming up here in about a month and a half or so. I think she could get into the top 30 and win her first title. Hearing about retirement makes me sad especially because I think her best tennis is ahead of her.

or maybe she has decided to call it quits

I remember Dally on TV once, she was a great competitor, it was nice to see someone from a non-tennis country do well.

Go Dally!

that's nice and all, but honestly - if DALLY didn't take the time to speak to you...that'd be BAD. I'm not sure she's A list !

She still is and has been the best African player after Amanda Coetzer.

Please don't retire now Dally!
