She says she's retiring at the end of 2007, and I believe her. I hope Kim has a fantastic year in 07 because I'm going to miss her when she leaves.

Re: Predict Clijsters' Decision by the end of next year!

i think it depends on her body next year. if she keeps on getting injured, she might stick with her decision. otherwise, she might change her mind.

i do hope she changes her decision though. she is too young to retire. just look at hingis. she retired young and wasnt satisfied, had to make a comeback.
i hope clijster will think carefully before making retirement. i hope she just follows agassi's style. giving everything to the game till the very end before retiring.

i think people have to understand that just because martina also retired before, it doesnt make her situation the same as kim.

to save time explaining the differences, i'll just quote myself from a post i made recently

Quote:
martina didnt really plan on retirement at that time, she was somewhat forced into it by her foot injury. so one can say she had unfulfilled business. kim OTOH has already set this dateline which she knows is coming. so she knows whatever she achieves by then will be it, it's not an abrupt end like martina

2nd point, martina didnt retire for a family. so there is no such baggage to consider when she came out of retirement. whereas kim is, and it's a whole new different ballgame to try to come back after having a family

Re: Predict Clijsters' Decision by the end of next year!

Yes, i think she's really going to retire. Maybe if she wins 2 grand-slams, and if she won't get injured nex year, she might play for another year but I don't think that's realistic. She looks very sure about her decision and her body is really fed up.
I'm going to miss her very much. She's been out for 3 months and I miss her now already.
She said she would play in Antwerp in 2008 and that will be her last tournament.

KIM CLIJSTERS
Dankjewel
Thank you


ANA IVANOVIC!!! Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jankovic

Re: Predict Clijsters' Decision by the end of next year!

Leave the girl alone she has been hard at it since around 15,and she used to enter doubles in most of her events.The way she plays it takes alot out of her body she is always on her feet dancing round the court sliding into balls.You can see why she is tired.And she says she wants to enjoy a good quality of life and have children with brian lynch.Its time for her to call it a day

If Kim enters all Slams before retirement and wins all and if Justine doesnt win anymore Kim could end with one more Slam than Justine

No, she will continue playing for many, many years.
Because she will realize that there will be never anything in which she is as good as in tennis.
