Thumbs down Some Sidot sad news...

Well that's a sad new for all her fans... Anne-Gaelle Sidot decided to retire from professional tennis. Even if she passed the first round at the french, she officially decided to walk off courts...

She is now married since June 15th with her long time boyfriend, a soccer player.

Let's hope the best in her life. Best of luck to the french beauty, Anne-Gaelle Sidot!!! (Can't still not believe she retire with a big serv like that but anyway...)

It is sad to lose a player who never really realized her potential. But she retired on her own terms. All I can do is wish her luck and I hope she one day decides to give back to tennis and perhaps coach young French players.

God Bless Anne

I will always have in minds the Toronto tournament in 1999 where she was able to reach the semis and play 2 big sets against Seles even if she lost 6-4,6-4, i think it was her best tournament of all time. It is some good memories for me. I was there behind her chair every game except the one against Seles because it was on the main court. And even if this is hard to believe, Anne-Gaelle was so nice with me during that week.

She could easily be a regular top 30 in the world but i happen only few weeks Sad to see her quit...

Wow, tough times for the French. Seems like about 2 years ago they had Testud, Tauziat, Halard, Mauresmo, Sidot, and Dechy all in the top 25 at about the same time.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I figured her interest in tennis as quite low, since she made a huge drop in the ranks last year. It was sad to see that, because Anne-Gaelle was a player who never came close to fulfilling her potential. She'll be missed!


I just hope she's enjoying life outside of tennis now.

Yes Anne-Gaelle is happy now. But personnally, i don't think it is good for a women to stop everything to follow her husband whenever he goes...

She was oh so talented.... and her backhand was beautiful!
Why didn't she realize her potential? she could have been so much more successful.... But i also feel she wasn't very interested in tennis.

she partly never recovered from that Samantha Stevenson incident,
Amelie Cocheteux has also really suffered badly since Wimbledon 2000 when both her and Anne-Gaelle were involved.

Good luck to my favs

What was that Wimbledon-incident again? I've asked this to some people already, but never really got a good answer. Anyone wanting to tell it in detail?

And BTW, also sorry to see Anne-Gaelle go... She really had a special game. I remember her beating Kim (when she was still an upcoming player though) in Hamburg I think in February 2000. I just hope she enjoys herself, whatever she decides to do!
