Martina N: This is my last year

She said this time is for real and that she is ready for a normal life with her life partner and her cats and dogs.

We'll miss you Martina

I hope she'll stick around the game in some capacity. Martina's one of a kind.

She did say it's not for definate and she has said this before, I think it will depend on whether she gets that 21st Wimby title she's looking for, if she wins it she will go if she doesn't I think she will evaluate her fitness etc and maybe have another shot.

close your eyes and believe

That's disappointing

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 thought you were talking about Hingis until I read the Jonathan Ross part.

She's had a nice, long career. It's time for her to retire.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

OMG, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Maybe she'll change her mind. If not I would really like to see her win one last Grand Slam this year, doubles or mixed!!
