Nicole Pratt's retired, but who can forget this diving shot!

Check it out, even gets a clap and a rare smile from the usually undiplomatic sour faced Pierce!

She may have had to abruptly retire due to knee operation gone wrong, but I will always remember her for her fighting qualities. She never had the build to be able to out hit the top players but she at least became one the very fittest players and really did the best she could and fought to the end.
Happy retirement Nicole

Nicole is still a great diver...back in the day they used to say that I was the best 'diver' downtown if you know what I mean and I know that you do.

Re: Nicole Pratt's retired, but who can forget this diving shot!

It's been posted before, but thanks for reminding me .

Beautiful shots from Nicole. Pierce did a good job to stay in the point. What I love about Nicole is that she may not be the most talented player on the circuit but she MADE herself into a player with lots of hard work and determination. I always loved her fighting spirit!


serena, jankovic, venus, na, hsieh, date-krumm, jovanovski
makarova, diatchenko, halep, goerges and kvitova
