Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

i don't think she has retired. maybe she's taking an extended break from tennis.

At 30?

Good luck when she tries to comeback

She'll be well outside the Top 200 at the beginning of next year when she will turn 31

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

At Fed Cup she tried to play Flipkens in Singles but had to withdraw from injury. I don't believe I have seen her in a draw since then, but I am probably wrong.

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

yeah I don't think she has played since that fed cup tie against Belgium during the summer. Mashona provided the most memorable match of this year for me - her amazing french open 1st round encounter with Maria Sharapova, she hit the most amazing winners.Nerves got the better of her at the end though. I remember that match like it
was yesterday

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

it would be a shame if she retires now, she's had more success in the latter years of her career

she should keep going imo

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

Is there no information from WTA, like withdrawal reasons? I think she wil lcome back and probably with an injury ranking.

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

Hey ! I spoke to Jenny Hopkins at the US OPEN and she mentioned to me she's still playing. She's just resting her injury. She'll be back net year for sure!

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

Yes i remember reading that she withdrew from summer tournaments due to a foot injury. I'm guessing that's what kept her out the rest of the season also. Hopefully she comes back strong next year!

Re: Any word on Mashona Washington?

I just noticed she was gone the other day while I was checking out the rankings and saw her way below top 150. Then I remembered I hadn't seen her in any recent draws.

Man, she's one of the most stunning tennis player I've laid my eyes on Eye candy
