I think Martina showed quite clearly that she could compete with the best when healthy. After all, she was only a mental collapse away from the AO title!
As for interest though, I'm prepared to agree that she might not have what it takes... she's been around for a long time, that will make it less fun... and of course if you've been the best and isn't anymore, it will be less fun... and of course, many millions on the bank and a new love...
Martina also has the heel problems that wouldn't be solved by the surgery, so even if that injury heals, she might never be fully fit again, and that's also a reason to quit.
In conclusion, I don't believe Martina will quit without another attempt to come back, though I wouldn't rule it out. If she comes back, gets injured again, and still has a lover, I wouldn't be surprised at all if she quit.
