Who will retire in 2007?

I think Mary is #1 candidate. I do honestly hope she comes back from that horrible injury, but it is going to be very tough to make it all the way back, so she will probably retire after the US Open.


Here is who has been mentioned so far

Group 1 - Almost certain:

Kim, Mary, Elena L., Anna Smashnova

Group 2 - Possible:

Ai, Paola, Pratt, Chanda, Amy

Group 3 - Big surprise:

Nastya, Schaul, Virginia

Vassilissa is my girl............

Re: Who will retire in 2007?

Kim-she's said so herself
Likhovtseva-she's gettin on up there in 'tennis age' wouldn't surprise me...
Sugiyama-results have gone done in the past couple of years, still a great player, but running out of time I think...
Myskina-she seems fed up with tennis, I think she's said if her play doesn't get back to a top level that she would leave...

Others I could see retiring: Pratt, Smashnova, Schaul, etc.

I think Mary will give it a big try to come back in '08 for the Olympics...hopefully

Myskina?

If Sugiyama enters Masters in DOubles, she might consider it.
