OFFICIAL: María A. Sanchez-Lorenzo Retires !!!




I still can't believe but in the tv coverage of ITF Barcelona 75.000$ today, it seems Miguel Margets (Fed Cup Captain) said that María retires from tennis.
She has been forced to retire for this year due to back problems but .... a poster said in the Spanish Forum that Mico said that so ...

But still unofficial
It would be a very sad new, we need you María!

It's official. Look at the front page of Maria's hometown newspaper "Tribuna de Salamanca"
http://www.tribuna.net/imagenes/portada.pdf

On upper right corner it says: Maria Antonia Sanchez leaves her tennis career due to back problems

The screams all sound the same
