News about Mary Pierce: she'll be back!
There's been a huge article today in French sports newspaper L'Equipe. One full page after months with no news!!!
So roughly, they talk about the place she stays, in Colorado, and the Health Center she works everyday at to be back on tour. Lots of champs have been there, including Martina Navratilova, who recommended the place to her.
She works hard. Recently, she felt really bad looking at her WTA ranking of 180th, and felt it was not where she should be! It hurt her a bit.
In Colorado, she stays in a small "Paradise House" in which also live her mother and their three dogs. Family come and stay there, such as aunts and uncles, and her brother David, who is currently training for a martial arts competition. But she says there are less and less calls from the "French tennis family", which disappoints her a bit!
She also talks about the doubt she's been through; As a fervent catholic, she first tried to understand why God had her gone through such a painful period, and wondered if she really wanted to come back, as the doc said she could. And now, she says that she is more and more eager to be back, she wishes it badly!
She should go back on courts around 6-9 months after the surgery (end of october 2006), so she should shart training between May and July, to be back on the tour for the beginning of 2008, as she still feels young and willing to play! Her wish still is to make the Olympic Games!
