Lightbulb Former world #27 Kristina Brandi has officially retired

I don't think this has been posted since K-Tinas retirement earlier in 2008.
I'll post a brief recap of her career along with her most impressive career stats below for those who are interested in one of Peurto Ricos most successfull professional athletes.

Kristina Brandi (born March 29, 1977) is a Puerto Rican tennis player and the "first" to win an Olympic tennis match representing Puerto Rico.




Early years

Brandi was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where she became interested in the sport of tennis at an early age. She made her professional debut in 1995 when she was 17 years old.


USTA Circuit

In 2003, Brandi won the most titles of any woman on the "USTA Circuit". She took home trophies from six events. Brandi was a member of the 2003 Puerto Rican Fed Cup Team where she captured the singles championship at the $75,000 event in Albuquerque, New Mexico plus, the $50,000 event in Troy, Alabama and $25,000 in Peachtree City, Georgia.


2004 Olympics
Brandi represented Puerto Rico in the 2004 Olympics, celebrated in Athens, Greece. She became the "first" Puerto Rican tennis player, representing Puerto Rico, to win a singles match in an Olympic when she beat Jelena Kostanić from Croatia (7–5 and 6–1). Brandi is a major contender at the Surbiton Trophy, defeating Laura Granville in the 2005 event.


Most recently Brandi defended her ITF-Surbiton title defeating Laura Granville from the USA. Brandi's grass season plans for 2006 include the Main Draw of the Birmingham Tournament at the WTA Tour level as well as the qualifying tournament at Eastbourne before heading to compete in the Wimbledon main draw.

Her retirement was posted at the beginning of the year.

Vilmarie Castellvi seems to have stopped as well.

Re: Former world #27 Kristina Brandi has officially retired

the game will never be the same without her

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.
