Should Veuns retire?

Her time is clearly past. Lil Sis rules the world now. Should Venus gracefully retire now?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

yep the whole tour should retire, except Kimmy and Serena then

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Didn't expect that from you, Volcana.

I hope it's sarcarsm.

serious I am sure venus will not like this and will practise even harder to get her crown back, while serena will do anything to hold her crown
I think they will bring tennis to an even higher level

Talking

I think every player who´s lost to either Venus or Serena should retire, including Venus and Serena!

Yeah... the WTA should just dissolve...

Except for those 200+ ranked players that have never lost to Venus or Serena cause they never played them. That way, we cann protect tennis from the power.

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

Yes, Venus should retire. It's an embarrassement, she's still 22!
