Unhappy Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

I'm devastated. Truly! I would have hoped for some sort of announcement at least.

Re: Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

A player that has been a wonderful inspiration for all of us that play and love tennis. I even learned how to play double handed on both sides just because of her, and it was hard I can tell you ( )... but fun anyway! Love you Monica!

Re: Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

I don't think that means anything--she hasn't been listed there for years. Her profile is still on the site and doesn't say that she is retired

She was there last year, I am (almost) sure of it. Regardless, I want an official answer eventhough my heart already knows.

Hon, she's been *retired* for years. She's not coming back.

Re: Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

It doesn't necessarily mean much.

Maybe the WTA website automatically removes players who haven't played for like 4 years and are about 35 years old.

Re: Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

I think Monica should at least play in the U.S. as a farewell tour even if she gets her butt kicked in teh first round which I know she wouldn't. Her schedule could be like

Memphis
Acapulco
Miami
Amelia Island
Charleston
lower euro clay events
Roland Garros
Madrid
Wimby
Cincy
etc

Lorena Ochoa
Julieta Granada Minea Blomqvist Sophia Sheridan Suzann Pettersen Annika Sorenstam Paula Creamer Grace Park

I'm not so sure she was there last year either. Tennis Magazine always has a list of players who retired at the end of every year. I'm always surprised by one or two that I didn't know about. Hopefully, Monica will not be on it. In that article that came out in September Monica said she would make a decision in the next few weeks or month (http://www.insidetennis.com/0906_seles.html), but we never heard anything. Maybe she is waiting until right before the beginning of next tennis year to announce it.

Re: Seles No Longer Listed Under Active Players

Monica said she would never be fully back and if she played it would be part-time.
She also said that if she didn't come back by the summer of 2006, then she never was coming back.
Seles is gone and honestly it might be too hard for her to give a retirement statement considering what she's been through.
It's probably for the best.
