Will Kim Clijsters ever be sorry for her decision to retire at the end of 2007?

What do you think?

In my opinion she won´t, but who knows... Maybe she does it like Martina Hingis and comes back a few years later?

Consider that she´s still so young (23 y.) and after a marriage and children pause she could make up her mind. I would jump into the clouds if she´d come back sometimes.

If not I´d say that her health is more important than watching her on the courts worldwide. Whatever may happen, I´ll enjoy the time with Kimmi that is quite guaranteed to her fans until the end of 2007. Hopefully she won´t get seriously injured again.

Would you be so nice and answer in a bit more words?! Your answer may also stand alone and say all but you could have given a reason for your opinion...

Re: Will Kim Clijsters ever be sorry for her decision to retire at the end of 2007?

NO. and if you want a longer answer, i'm going to quote myself from a post i made a few weeks back

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

When it comes to having a similar thread three times within a few weeks I just can say: Man can´t talk enough about candy Kim...

But to be serious: Thanks for your answers here.

@ Kunal: Good to read that another person still hopes, Kim could reconsider things and come back sometimes.

yeah it's true. i remember replying 2 a thread similar 2 this one. but 2 answer this thread's question no i don't think she will regret her decision to retire at end of 2007 or at least maybe by antwerp in 2008 as she's had bout enough of the injuries that r taking it's toll on her body & that her health is more important.

Who knows? Who cares? It's for Kim to find out and Kim alone.

Kim might regret announcing it.
All next year she'll be asked about it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Will Kim Clijsters ever be sorry for her decision to retire at the end of 2007?

Probably not.
But maybe when she sees all the youngsters winning more major titles than her even though she knows she is much better than all of them. It's a real shame that she is retiring.

Re: Will Kim Clijsters ever be sorry for her decision to retire at the end of 2007?

she won´t - she will get pregnant and will become a bored overweight housewife

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
