Will Myskina ever comeback?

Do you guys think Nastya Myskina will ever come back?
I really hope so, the tour is so much more dull without her! She was a bit of a dramaqueen, and her game was just gorgeous to watch! She moved around the court as good as anyone (shes up there with Venus and Jankovic in terms of court coverage!), and her backhand was just phenomenal. Her forehand was really smooth and flat, brilliant to watch on grass courts!

In 2003/2004, Davenport/justine was playing at at least as high a level as Jankovic/Ivanovic/Sharapova, if not hiher, and Nastya proved she had the game to beat them and be amongst the very best, if she got back to that form, she would definately be top 5 again! I think of all the russians she had the best game, only sharapova on fast hard courts would have her number!

what do you think?>

She didn't seem motivated to return when she was out injured and now with a baby it's highly unlikely, shame, I just loved her game, she was such a joy to watch.

Re: Will Myskina ever comeback?

She'll probably do some hitting after the baby's born, to get back in shape.
If she's healthy and feeling good, she might give it a try.
I said that about Lindsay over a year ago, and a lot of the Lindsay fans disagreed.
But they love tennis. Kournikova still practices almost everyday. Nastya will never stop hitting tennis balls. But she might not come back on the tour.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Will Myskina ever comeback?

I don't expect her to come back. The only reason for her to is if she feel she could do more. It'd be hard to see her winning another slam, but it doesn't matter, she's already in the history books thanks to her French Open win.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

I think that is a great post and you describe the beauty of Nastya's game and her strengths very well. I always found it funny that Nastya won her slam on clay when grass was a much suitable surface for her but tennis is a funny thing sometimes.

But sadly I don't think Nastya will be back. She was my favorite player too and I do miss her a lot. No one in the game can replace her grace and beauty. She left the game way too early.

But as soon as she stopped playing I sensed it was over and I took her name off my signature. To keep it there would have been too depressing. It is easier for me to think of her as retired and never coming back than to live in painful hope. I don't want to be like some Capriati and Seles fans.

She has been reduced to a baby momma with baby daddy problems.She has to go to court for DNA test and then child support,thats too much for a travelling athelete.

Re: Will Myskina ever comeback?

Sadly she won't come back. But I see her succeeding Tarpischev as Russian Fed Cup Captain. That would be hot !!!

Yes French Open Winner and former world #2 plus Fed Cup winner in 2004 and so close to Olympic Gold... Also a tremendous achievement was that she was one of the most entertaining and lovely girl to watch.
